"...Don Bilotti as the ghost of Barrymore makes his entrance dressed in full Hamlet regalia, drawing on his extensive stage experience to bring buoyant life to this pivotal role. It is remarkable to observe how much he can convey with a brief facial expression or a raised eyebrow. In a wickedly funny performance, Bilotti plays his role with the bravado it deserves, but never at the expense of others."
Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm.
