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

This was fantastic - as good as when I saw it on TV around twenty years ago! David Birney wrote the screenplay - he doesn't seem to age.
For those who haven't seen it, it begins with PASSIONATE love poems, then segues (sp?) into the main story.
The acting of both co-stars was tremendous, and the (minimal) set was perfect. I could hear almost all the dialogue (which is rare for me).
Quotes & Highlights
- *"Eendearing… a reminder of Twain’s storytelling genius and how much fun it can be… flavorful as apple cider, pungent, ironic." -Los Angeles Times
“Sharp and resourceful… played with freshness and theatricality…charming.” __-Variety__
The delicious and timeless wit of humorist Mark Twain is illuminated in David Birney’s stage adaptation, which won praise from L.A. to New York for Twain’s tender, knowing, and terrifically witty observations on the nature of men, women and love. A tour-de-force performance by Birney and co-star Madylon Brans!
