John Lithgow Returns to Broadway Tonight as Stories By Heart Opens
Lithgow's solo show is directed by Daniel Sullivan.
After acclaimed runs at Lincoln Center Theater, London's National Theatre, and across the United States, John Lithgow's solo show Stories By Heart marks its Broadway debut tonight, January 11, at the American Airlines Theatre. The Roundabout Theatre Company production, directed by Daniel Sullivan, will run through March 4.
In this theatrical memoir, Lithgow "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 P.G. Wodehouse." Lithgow's first iteration of Stories By Heart premiered in 2008, with Jack O'Brien directing.
The design team includes John Lee Beatty (sets) and Kenneth Posner (lights).
Lithgow won Tony Awards for his work in Sweet Smell of Success and The Changing Room, and received nominations for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, M. Butterfly, and Requiem for a Heavyweight. He is the recipient of three Emmys, two SAG Awards, and a Golden Globe for his role in the sitcom Third Rock From the Sun, as well as Emmys for his work on Dexter, Amazing Stories and Netflix's The Crown.
