81 year old Christopher Plummer blows away critcs in Barrymore

Canada's dean of thespians, Christopher Plummer is wowing theatre critics with his starring role in William Luce's play Barrymore.

Plummer is Canada's greatest actor (unless you count Bill Shatner) and is bringing a thrill to crowds who would normally associate the name Barrymore with Drew and not her grandfather.

While the praise for Plummer in Barrymore is universal, opinion about the play itself is mixed with many critics saying the play more a collection of one-liners than a cohesive narrative.

If you get a chance to see Plummer on stage, take it.

This link will take you to a brief scene from Barrymore, currently playing at The Elgin Theatre in Toronto.
