at the Mitzi Newhouse

By David Lefkowitz
Published March 18 2008

  John Lithgow

Two-time Tony winner John Lithgow will take on a two-night stint from April 20-June 2, when he brings his show, Stories by Heart, to Lincoln Center's Mitzi Newhouse Theater. The solo, which will mix Lithgow's career memories with his storytelling prowess, plays on Sundays and Mondays when Paul Rudnick's The New Century is dark.

Lithgow's most recent New York appearance was a January quickie at the New Victory Theater with the family show, The Sunny Side of the Street, but he's best known in theater circles for his Tony-nominated work in M. Butterfly and the recent Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and his two Tony wins, for 1973's The Changing Room and 2002's Sweet Smell of Success. Outside Broadway, Lithgow's most famous for his career-making featured role in The World According to Garp and starring on TV's 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Officially opening May 12, Stories by Heart will cover three generations of the Lithgow family, capped by the actor playing nine characters while relating P.G. Wodehouse's story, Uncle Fred Flits By.

Jack O'Brien, who directed Lithgow in Scoundrels and also corralled Tom Stoppard's epic, The Coast of Utopia, will stage Stories. Interviewed during the Scoundrels run, Lithgow said of the director, Jack O'Brien is an amazing trouble-shooter, and he understands the shape of a piece of theater."
