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).
