The Royal Family

January 28 - March 19, 2017 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage

A comedic valentine to the theater

For the Cavendishes, the “Royal Family” of Broadway, the show must go on. Set in 1920s Manhattan, this American classic (loosely based on the legendary Barrymore family) centers on three generations of actors, each at different stages in their careers. From an aging grande dame to a promising ingénue, together they confront a choice between secure, yet dull domesticity and an erratic, egocentric yet potentially fulfilling life on the stage. A brilliant comedy, The Royal Family is a masterfully written love letter to the Great White Way.
