“A Word or Two”

Christopher Plummer's A Word or Two at the Ahmanson

Written, arranged and performed by Christopher Plummer
Directed by Des McAnuff; Presented in association with The Stratford Festival of Canada

Academy Award, Tony Award and Emmy Award winner Christopher Plummer, who confesses to being “hooked on the intoxication of words,” spent much of his time growing up in Montreal reading Ben Jonson, George Bernard Shaw, Shakespeare, Rudyard Kipling, A.A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, Lord Byron, Dylan Thomas, W.H. Auden, Stephen Leacock, and others.  His celebrated one-man show “A Word or Two,” which Charles Isherwood of The New York Times said was “… a passionate love letter to language…,” is Plummer’s personal take on these literary giants, which forms a journey from childhood to old age.
