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

Guys and Dolls was a stellar production. Orchestra, Cast, Choreography, all were exceptional. It is rare that the production values and the quality of the individuals combine with one of the best written books in Musical Theater leaving little or no room for improvement.
Based on Damon Runyon’s short story “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown,” Guys and Dolls revolves around Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York, who bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson that he can’t make the next girl he sees fall in love with him.
The next girl he sees happens to be Miss Sarah Brown, a pure-at-heart Salvation Army-type reformer, and the stage is set for an hilarious evening of complications.
How will it all come out? Will luck be a lady? It’s just a roll of the dice!
