In Memoriam: Christopher Plummer


Barrymore, Starring Christopher Plummer

GREAT PERFORMANCES mourns the passing of Christopher Plummer, one of the most accomplished stage and screen actors of his generation.  In 2014, Plummer’s versatility was memorably showcased on GREAT PERFORMANCES in “Barrymore,” a film version of Plummer’s Tony Award-winning performance as legendary actor John Barrymore.  And in 2015, Plummer was a presenter for the “King Lear” episode in the recurring series “Shakespeare Uncovered,” exploring the enduring power of one of his late career signature roles.
