BARRY IRVING has no idea how he ended up on this train, or where it's even headed, but is nonetheless thrilled to be aboard again! Barry recently appeared in Over My Dead Body, also with the Waltzing Mechanics. Native to the Chicagoland area, Barry studied at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University before earning a B.A. in acting from Columbia College Chicago. Most of his favorite previous credits have EL Stories somewhere in the title. Thanks to the family for their undying support and to his fellow Mechanics for allowing him to stumble upon this gold mine.
