Time Out says

In 1928, Lee and J.J. Shubert built this 1,058-seat and named it after Ethel Barrymore, part of the renowned Barrymore acting dynasty. Since then, it has been home to work by Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Rodgers and Hart, and many others. According to the Shubert Organization, the Herbert Krapp–designed exterior was "modeled on the public baths in Rome, with a two-story terra-cotta grillwork screen. The interior decor combines Elizabethan, Mediterranean and Adamsesque styles." Recently, film star Geoffrey Rush headlined a daring revival of the absurdist classic, Exit the King.

The Piano Lesson

  • Drama

Samuel L. Jackson, Danielle Brooks and John David Washington lead the cast of August Wilson's family drama about an upright piano freighted with tragic history. The play, which earned Wilson his second Pulitzer Prize in 1990, is set in Pittsburgh's Hill District in the 1930s, and is part of the playwright's ten-part, decade-by-decade survey of the African-American experience in the 20th century. LaTanya Richardson Jackson directs the show's first Broadway revival.
