A true living legend of comedy, John Cleese co-founded the landmark British comedy troupe Monty Python and starred in classic films like A Fish Called Wanda and TV series like Fawlty Towers. Now he comes to Boston’s Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College for Not Dead Yet, an evening of revealing, hilarious and sometimes mean-spirited stories from his life and his new autobiography, So, Anyway. He’ll take you behind the scenes of such eminently quotable comedies as Monty Python’s The Life of Brian and The Holy Grail, which served as the inspiration for the Tony-winning Broadway smash Spamalot.

John Lithgow signs on Friday September 30, 2011 at 7:00 PM. $5 tickets available at the link.
Harvard Book Store is thrilled to welcome award-winning actor, bestselling children’s book author, and now memoirist JOHN LITHGOW for a reading from Drama: An Actor’s Education.
John Lithgow’s memoir, among other things, is a tribute to his most important influence: his father, Arthur Lithgow, who, as an actor, director, producer, and great lover of Shakespeare, brought theater to John’s boyhood. From bedtime stories to Arthur’s illustrious productions, performance and storytelling were constant and cherished parts of family life. Drama tells of the Lithgows’ countless moves between Arthur’s gigs—John attended eight secondary schools before flourishing onstage at Harvard—and details with sharp recollection the moments that introduced a budding young actor to the undeniable power of theater.
Before Lithgow gained fame with the film The World According to Garp and the television show 3rd Rock from the Sun, his early years were full of scenes both hilarious and bittersweet. A shrewd acting performance saved him from duty in Vietnam. His involvement with a Broadway co-star brought an end to his first marriage. The theater worlds of New York and London come alive as Lithgow relives his collaborations with renowned performers and directors, including Mike Nichols, Bob Fosse, Liv Ullmann, and Meryl Streep. His ruminations on the nature of theater, film acting, and storytelling cut to the heart of why actors are driven to perform, and why people are driven to watch them do it.
