BARRY GORDON began his professional life at age three, as a child singer and actor. At
six, Barry recorded "Nuttin' for Christmas," still listed as one of the top ten best-selling
Christmas records of all time.
When he was thirteen, Barry's Broadway debut, in Herb Gardner's "A Thousand
Clowns," earned him a Tony nomination for the role of Nick, a role he reprised in the
successful film version.
Barry has performed in films and television for over sixty years, with a list of credits too
numerous to mention here.
In 1988, Barry became the longest-serving president of the Screen Actors Guild,
holding the office for over seven years.
He’s a proud member of the Parson’s Nose company and is currently the Chair of their Board. With the company, his favorite roles have been Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, Jaques in As You Like It, and Alfred Doolittle in Pygmalion.
