2017 Barrymore Awards for Excellence in Theatre

Theatre Philadelphia celebrates Excellence in Theatre with the Barrymore Awards. Since 1995, the Barrymores have honored excellence in our region's professional theatre community through awards in performance, design, and direction for plays and musicals.

Join fellow theatre-makers and supporters at this special one-night-only event celebrating theatre in the Greater Philadelphia region.
