John Lithgow returns to New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre — and this time with all his clothes on.
The Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor will bring his solo show “Stories by Heart” to celebrate the Long Wharf Theatre 2014 Gala on Friday, June 6.
Lithgow’s ties with Long Wharf go back to the early ‘70s with the world premiere of David Storey’s “The Changing Room,” which went on to Broadway where Lithgow won a Tony Award. The show was noted for its locker room nudity.
Lithgow was in “The Lady’s Not for Burning,” “What Price Glory?” and “Trelawney of the “Wells” in the ‘72-‘73 season. He also directed “A Pagan Pace” in the ‘73-‘74 season. He was also in “Spokesong” in the ‘77-‘78 season and in “Requiem for a Heavyweight” in the ’83-‘84 season.
Lithgow’s solo show, which he performed at New York’s Lincoln Center and London’s National Theatre, offers a touching and humorous reflection on storytelling, invoking memories of his grandmother and father.
Gala tickets start at $300. Limited number of performance-only tickets may be available in May. Invitations to the gala are available by calling 203-787-4234 or emailing Kathy.firstname.lastname@example.org
