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

Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, every day, run-of-the-mill ten-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life. That’s just the problem – For Stanley, life is too normal. He wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no one’s ever seen before. Careful what you wish for, Stanley! One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley’s bed comes loose and falls. Right on top of Stanley! And the next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat. Not just a little flat… Really, really flat. At first it’s not so bad. He can slide under locked doors, roll up like a mat, become a trampoline. His friends fly him like a kite. And Stanley’s the best in his class at hide-and-seek: He just turns to the side and virtually disappears. But he can’t stay flat forever – someone has to do something. And that someone is Stanley! Stanley puts himself in a big envelope and travels the world – a human letter!
And the adventure begins!
In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley – the ultimate pen pal – scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He’s stamped, posted and cancelled from Washington D.C. to France to Mexico to South Africa and beyond. And whether he’s rapping with the Declaration of Independence, thwarting robberies at the Louvre Museum in Paris, or learning about different cultures through song and dance, Stanley is closing in on his goal of being a three-dimensional boy once more.
