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

While some of the production values weren't the very best, all the other aspects of this show were wonderful. And the show itself, while a slightly redone version of the 1955 original, is lots of fun. Most of all, the music is as lovely as ever Cole Porter has been, and it was very well performed. The venue is also delightful, as we've experienced on many occasions previously.

Soviet-American relations were never funnier or had more singing and dancing than in this delightful tale involving a U.S. director, a Soviet composer scoring his film, and a pretty Russian spy trying to keep the composer from defecting.
In this musical remake of the 1939 classic film Ninotchka, an alluring but aloof female Communist visits Paris on an assignment to evaluate three Russian officials. But when she meets a charming U.S. filmmaker there, her perspective on the world changes — and the chilly bureaucrat soon finds herself melting in his arms.
Iit’s not long before she’s enjoying such decadent western pleasures as jazz, makeup and silk stockings. The classic Cole Porter songs include “All of You”, “Stereophonic Sound”, “Too Bad” “Paris Loves Lovers”, “Silk Stockings”, and “Fated to be Mated”.
