Great performance - but difficult to follow his stream of consciousness script. Both my husband and I thought it was not worth the drive plus even the reduced ticket price. Unless you are very well versed in literature (and speak French) you...continued

I went with a friend and our two 11 year old daughters. We all loved it. Christopher Plummer is so amazing, there were so many literary references I wanted to come home and start reading!

A wonderful evening as Christopher Plummer looks back at his life as seen and shaped through the language of great (and oftentimes not great) literature. Thoroughly delightful.

What a privilege it was to see this great performer on the stage. He is a master of vocal inflection, and is still a physical wonder on stage. He seems a giant, yet only of average height. He is wry, challenging, farcical, endearing, bright,...continued

Plummer is articulate and full of energy, a pleasure to watch. I would have given the show 5 stars but the seating was not as expected. I would have expect "Premium Orchestra" to be close to the front but it was actually quite far back. You're...continued

An entertaining time. Not so much history, as a more stream-of-consciousness with some entertainment thrown in as well type of show. A wonderful talent.

Everyone knows Christopher Plummer is a superb actor, but with this performance he has elevated himself to "National Treasure". I have seen many plays, concerts and the like that were extremely entertaining. "A WORD OR TWO" went right to the...continued

As Red Velvet member we got very close seats. It was a very interesting combination of poetry with his own words. He is quite a thespian!

I caught Christopher Plummer's one-man show, "A Word or Two," today, its last day at the Ahmanson Theatre in L.A. and was blown away, as was the audience that gave him a standing ovation at the end. A beautifully done, autobiographical portrait of...continued

The audience gave Mr. Plummer a rousing standing ovation at the end of the performance and I can understand why. I was part of the enthusiastic audience that applauded heartily when he first appeared on stage at the opening of the show. However,...continued

Plummer gave an INCREDIBLE performance. He glided across the stage like a man half his age, engaging the audience with one character after another, drew laughs and left the crowd pondering the more serious aspect of our mortality. Sets were...continued

The show was well-paced and nicely varied ,with both poignant and humorous moments. It managed to be reflective without being self-indulgent. Mr. Plummer's keen intellect, profound memory and ability to connect with an audience are second to none.
