On Monday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. “Barrymore” featuring Christopher Plummer will continue the NTL performance schedule.
This is an unforgettable portrayal of legendary actor John Barrymore, a man of colossal talent and contradictions and one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of all time. Set in 1942, the final year of John Barrymore's life, “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.”
Directed, and adapted for the screen, by Érik Canuel (Bon Cop, Bad Cop), “Barrymore” stars Christopher Plummer in the tour de force film performance of his career.
Tickets for this performance are also $20.
