Backstage With Barrymore


In January and February 2011, something very special happened in the world of theatre. One of the most distinguished actors of our generation, Christopher Plummer, stepped into the spotlight for his Legacy Performance of Barrymore. The entire original creative team was reunited as Barrymore returned to Toronto’s historic Elgin Theatre for only 30 performances.

Backstage with Barrymore is a documentary film about the re-creation of an incredible piece of theatre history. With exclusive access to the process and interviews with each and every one of the people responsible for this epic adventure in theatre, Backstage with Barrymore will provide intimate and personal interaction with all those who will contribute to both the stage production and the film version of Barrymore: The Legacy Performance.
