About the show

Following triumphant appearances at New York’s Lincoln Center and London’s National Theatre, the Tony® and Emmy® Award winning actor John Lithgow brings his one-man-show, Stories by Heart, to Boulder. It offers a touching and humorous reflection on storytelling as the tie that binds humanity. Invoking memories of his grandmother and father before him, Lithgow traces his roots as an actor and storyteller, interspersing his own story with two great stories that were read to him and his siblings when they were children. Stories by Heart provides ample evidence of the power of storytelling, the magic of theatre, and the talents of one of our greatest actors.
