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

This event had a special draw for me. My fourteen year old Grandson plays trumpet in his high school marching band and obviously enjoys it as he does it with so much style. I knew that he might not know anything about the instruments history....and I certainly didn't. I couldn't purchase the three tickets fast enough....one for Cody, his mother and myself. Not only were we given the history of all the wind instruments but the wonderful musicians in this group of five played the music of the time period on those instruments!
Thank you Goldstar for making this opportunity for learning and enjoying great music available to us.
