The iconic Christopher Plummer is one of the few recognizable members of Canada’s entertainment royalty.
And while he is perhaps best remembered as the iconic Captain Von Trapp in family-favourite musical The Sound of Music, Plummer’s varied career has successfully spanned both sides of the border.
A long-time veteran of the Stratford stage, Plummer brings his love of the theatre and his musicality to Toronto’s Roy Thompson Hall for a limited two-night engagement (September 22 and 24) for an opening celebration of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s 90th Season.
The show features excerpts from English composer William Walton’s score of Lawrence Oliver’s adaptation of Henry V.
Plummer will pay the titular character, a role that actually inspired his decision to pursue a career as an actor.
Additional musical performances include Tchaikovksy’s Romeo & Juliet.
Paul Gross, of Men With Brooms and Due South fame, spars with Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall in the Mirvish Production of Noël Coward’s Private Lives, currently running at the Royal Alexandra Theatre.
Not your typical rom-comedy, sceneopolis subscribers get the exclusive opportunity to meet and greet Mr. Gross after the September 30th performance.
