The Royal Family of Broadway by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin is playing at Barrington Stage’s Boyd-Quinson Mainstage until July 7. This is a musical adaptation of the play, The Royal Family by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber. The family of actors is based on the Barrymore family which spanned many generations. John and Ethel are represented in the play by Tony and Julie Cavendish. Lionel of the famous sibling trio is not represented although he had a distinguished career on stage and in film, most notably as Mr. Potter in It’s A Wonderful Life.
