Marlee Matlin and Henry Winkler

Marlee Matlin & Henry Winkler
Together on stage, Winkler and Matlin delight audiences with an intimate dialogue revealing their profound connection and individual journeys. Through humorous anecdotes, inspirational life lessons and moving stories, Winkler and Matlin explore themes of overcoming adversity and believing in oneself. Henry met Marlee when she was just 12 years old. He, being Henry, encouraged her to pursue her dreams and a life-long friendship ensued. Marlee lived with Henry and his wife for years. They each had to confront challenges—his undiagnosed dyslexia and her profound deafness—only to defy the odds and establish incredibly successful careers and lives. Hear them as they tell stories, interacting with (and interrupting) each other just like family.
