In Stories by Heart John Lithgow invokes memories of three generations of his family history while tracing his own life as an actor and storyteller. Mr. Lithgow tells of reading P.G. Wodehouse to his father when he was gravely ill - the same story his father had read to him 50 years before (a jazzy tour-de-force, he plays 9 characters!) It rallied the old man's failing spirits and in the sound of his father's laughter, Mr. Lithgow discovered the healing power of storytelling - and so will audiences through this funny and touching performance.
