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
Book, Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on a poem by Joseph Moncure March
Not to be confused with the Broadway show of the same name, Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party was developed at the Manhattan Theatre Club, winning the 2000 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and Drama Desk Award for Best Music. Set in the Roaring 20s, it tells the story of one wild evening in the New York apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and her lover, as they set out to make each other jealous. Lippa’s score captures the sound of a bygone era and drives the tale of passions out of control.
The Musical Theatre Guild presents this encore performance of their hit concert staging of the show for one night only.
The performance contains adult context and is not suitable for children under 16.
