You never know what might happen at a Surprising Night of Shorts. Some of our previous surprising nights have included evenings with Alice Munro, Chuck Palahniuk, Richard Price and John Irving, as well as stories inspired by Jane Eyre, hilarious stories with Simon Rich & Patricia Marx, and the art of imbibing inspired by Everyman's Shaken & Stirred collection.
Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.
Actors subject to change.
Premium tickets are available and include a $50 tax-deductible donation to Symphony Space.
