A Word or Two, the solo evening from Academy, Tony and Emmy winner Christopher Plummer, officially opens Jan. 22 at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre after previews that began Jan. 19 in Los Angeles.
Written and arranged by Plummer and directed by Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, A Word or Two is presented in association with The Stratford Festival of Canada for 16 performances only, through Feb. 9.
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.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
