Selected Shorts radio show host and author Meg Wolitzer (The Female Persuasion) takes the stage to host an evening of funny, surprising, and poignant stories about intertwined lives and complicated ties. This program celebrates the bonds we share - for better and for worse! With performances by actors Kathryn Erbe (City on a Hill), Fred Hechinger (The White Lotus), Richard Kind (East New York), Julianna Margulies (The Morning Show), and Karen Pittman (And Just Like That...). Author Elizabeth Strout (Lucy by the Sea) makes a guest appearance to introduce a William Trevor story, and Selected Shorts pays tribute to the late Melissa Bank (The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing) with a reading of her work.
Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 130 stations around the country. 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.
Real-time captioning (CART) will be available in our theater for patrons with hearing loss, deafness, different language and learning needs, and anyone whose experience will be enhanced by CART. To access CART on your individual smartphone or tablet, please visit bit.ly/SymphonySpace_Captions.
