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

Quotes & Highlights
- "Lovingly and precisely recaptures the sound in a irrepressible, irresistible style. They deserve a national medal for preserving this music with such affection and accuracy.” –<em>San Francisco Chronicle</em>
The Long Beach Community Concert Association closes out their season with a swinging finale featuring an audience favorite: the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra. Drawing inspiration from the great music of the "Jazz Age" and "Swing Era," the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra affectionately recaptures the excitement and fascination of that musical heyday.
