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 was a very enjoyable performance with a delightful story and wonderful music. Bob Fosse's choreography of "Steam Heat" was excellent. Both leads, Paul Dean and Darcie Roberts, had great voices that were a delight to hear. Terra Macleod as Gladys stole the show with her great acting. There was no problem understanding the words of the songs or the lines, in contrast to many shows.

“Popping with percolating hormones” —New York Times
Bright and brassy, sexy and sassy, the original production of The Pajama Game won the Tony for Best Musical and Choreography and helped launch the careers of Bob Fosse and Janis Paige. The revival won the Tony for Best Revival and starred Harry Connick, Jr. and Michael McKean. Love and strife in a 1950s factory along with dazzling dancing drive this hit-filled show, which features classic songs like “Hey There,” “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.”
