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

Good concept. Unfortunately, Mr. Plummer forgot about 30% of his lines and had to be prompted from the wings. I don't that was part of the concept. Mr. Plummer later apologized but I think the prompter should have been brought out for a round of...continued

Commander Von Trapp was awesome. I must help it admits if you're well read to understand the literary reference. some went right over my head. Get there early and enjoy the lovely wine garden and beautiful fountains. A real treat.

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

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

Please give us the option to move our seats back a bit from the third row when possible.
Mr. Plummer's shoes looked lovely and his sinuses seem quite clear.
That said it was a pleasant enough evening.
