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
Reviews & Ratings
In 1990, John Fleck and Karen FInley were at the center of one of the biggest arts controversies in U.S. history, and together with Holly Hughes and Tim Miller they became known as the ‘NEA Four.’ They continue to give us something to talk about!
John Fleck takes the audience on a hair-raising roller coaster ride with a pair of Mad Women: Judy Garland & John Fleck’s mother, Josephine. Buckle up and hold on tight as they twist, wind & sing their way through the cultural mindset of the late 1960s!
Plus Catch 23: Broken Negative, a work in progress by Karen Finley where she uncovers and reveals the desperation of making meaning out of trauma creatively. The piece—part memory, part emotional individuation, part research and discovery—revisits the inspiration of her earlier iconic works that confronted subjects such as abuse, female rage, violence, homophobia and the outsider.
This performance contains mature themes.
