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

We were disappointed and left at the intermission. The performance was not at the calibre we expected. Although the drummer and pianist sounded good, sometimes the trumpeter and sax players were off. Other people seemed to be enjoying it.
The holidays will be in full swing, as the inimitable style of the Harry James Orchestra delivers Yule-time favorites along with classic tracks like “I’ll Get By,” “I Don’t Want to Walk Without You,” “I Cried for You,” “I Had the Craziest Dream” and “I’ve Heard That Song Before” — all under the direction of lead trumpet virtuoso Fred Radke — a bravura performance!
