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

I've been wanting to attend a Pilobolus performance ever since I learned about the group on 60 Minutes many ages ago. The performance was excellent and I was amazed at the strength of the performers and the fluidity of it all. I would definitely make a point to watch another Pilobolus performance next year. However, I would not recommend watching any performance at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center. This was my first visit to the center and my last. A lot of the patrons were obviously CSULB students who were attending the performance because they had to as opposed to because they wanted to. There were a handful of them on their phones during the performance posting things on Twitter and Facebook---you couldn't help but notice the bright light in the midst of the darkness. Also, the ushers were not very helpful and the individuals manning the ticket window and will call booth were not friendly at all.
