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

Very different - great combination of athletics and clever sets
Some good humor and dramatic visuals
I would recomend they also add lights and or dayglow to some of the activities and perform in the dark - would have been very dramatic!
Thrill to the impact of extreme sports combined with the poetry and split-second timing of dance. Exploding with the suspense and energy of near-misses and imminent crashes, action-architect Elizabeth Streb’s daring performers explore the boundaries of force, gravity, action and reaction. Whether flying, falling, or seemingly suspended in mid-air, Streb brings the audience ringside for a match-up of human pitted against the phenomenal forces of everyday physical action—creating a new aesthetic of grace and danger.
