Join acclaimed actor of stage and screen John Lithgow (3rd Rock From the Sun, Dexter) for a touching and humorous tribute to the power of storytelling in the autobiographical one-man show Stories by Heart. Interspersing his own journey as an actor with two classic stories that were read to him as a child, the Tony-, Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor gives a tour de force performance, inhabiting a dozen characters with zany abandon. In P.G. Wodehouse's "Uncle Fred Flits By," a fretful young Englishman is taken on a wild afternoon's escapade in suburban London by his irrepressible uncle. Ring Lardner's "Haircut" is a darkly comic yarn told by a gossipy barber in small-town Michigan. Learn More
