Christopher Plummer BARRYMORE
Hartford, CT
Share this event:

BARRYMORE, written by the distinguished, award-winning playwright, William Luce, is based on the life of actor John Barrymore. Barrymore was directed by three-time Tony Award winner, Gene Saks.  The sets and costumes were created by Santo Loquasto and the lighting designer was Natasha Katz.  
Directed, and adapted for the screen, by √Črik Canuel, BARRYMORE stars Academy Award nominee Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music, 12 Monkeys, A Beautiful Mind, Beginners).

BARRYMORE, set in 1942, is an unforgettable portrayal of acclaimed American actor John Barrymore, a member of one of Hollywood's most well-known multi-generational theatrical dynasties and one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of all time. No longer a leading box office star, the film finds Barrymore reckoning with the ravages of his life of excess. BARRYMORE takes place on the stage of a Broadway theatre, where the actor is struggling to recreate his performance in the title role of Shakespeare's Richard III.

"FIENDISHLY ENTERTAINING. CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER SPECTACULARLY CONFIRMS HIS REPUTATION AS THE FINEST CLASSICAL ACTOR OF NORTH AMERICA. The performance is so skilled both as interpretation and impersonation that it does something remarkable: It puts Barrymore's very style of acting in a richly personal and illuminating context."
Ben Brantley, The New York Times

PLUS: Special bonus feature BACKSTAGE WITH BARRYMORE (a making of documentary) featuring Helen Mirren, Julie Andrews, and Zoe Caldwell
