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

Great show! I was a little worried about a 4 person cast-but I have to say they did great. It was very entertaining and the second half stole the show! Im sure every show is a little different...you'll see why....but the one I saw had me crying of laughter. Needless to say, we had a great time!
Stationed during World War II on a South Pacific Army base, three soldiers find themselves giving the performance of their lives when a certain trio of singing sisters fail to show up for their USO gig. Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, The Hut Sut Song, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and A Slow Boat to China are just a few of the wonderful songs that highlight this valentine to the heroes of World War II.
Nick DeGruccio (recently awarded “Best Director” honors by the LA Drama Critic’s Circle for Zanna, Don’t!) will direct The Andrews Brothers, with choreography by Roger Castellano and musical direction by John Glaudini. Roger Bean, creator of The Andrews Brothers, will be in residence, overseeing the production. Stan Chandler, David Engel and Larry Raben, all original cast members of the hit Broadway show Forever Plaid, will star as the three hapless G.I.s, with Darcie Roberts (Broadway’s Curtains and Millie in the National Tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie) rounding out this all-star cast.
