While it’s easy to recognize John Lithgow for his famous roles in The World According to Garp, Terms of Endearment and Shrek, he is also a Tony Award-winning actor who feels as comfortable in front of a live audience as he does before a Hollywood camera. In his one-man theatrical tour-de-force, Stories by Heart, John Lithgow reveals the healing power of story telling in theatrical tales that span three generations.
Price A: $59 | Price B: $49
Funny, suspenseful and disarming, Lithgow has mastered the art of the tale, flipping the mood in a moment while keeping you on the edge of your seat. His bravura storytelling finds him playing a dozen character roles in this production, simply yet masterfully directed by Jack O’Brien of Hairspray fame.
It is Lithgow’s belief that storytelling is the unacknowledged tie that binds humanity. His selected tales of mischief-makers and tricksters are framed within the context of touching stories from his own family, including helping his ailing father to find his lost enthusiasm for life — a discovery that draws the evening together.
