Academy, Tony and Emmy winner Christopher Plummer will bring his one-man show, A Word or Two, to the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre this winter.

Written and arranged by Plummer and directed by Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, A Word or Two will be presented in association with The Stratford Festival of Canada for 16 performances only, Jan. 19-Feb. 9, 2014.

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 and Stephen Leacock, among others. His personal take on these literary giants forms a journey from childhood to old age.

A Word or Two premiered in 2012 at the Stratford Festival of Canada in Stratford, Ontario.
