December 21 2017 - March 4 2018 – John Lithgow's Stories by Heart in New York City

Virtuosity and imagination combine in one utterly unique event, as Tony and Emmy Award winner John Lithgow creates a singularly intimate evening. With equal measures of humor and heart, he evokes memories of family, explores and expands the limits of the actor’s craft, and masterfully conjures a cast of indelible characters from classic short stories by Ring Lardner and PG Wodehouse. Lithgow elevates the magic of storytelling to masterful new heights, with a performance the New York Times calls “a tour de force”. The venue is the American Airlines Theatre, 227 West 42nd Street. Tickets are available here.
