Symphony Space / Literature

Selected Shorts Goes to the Movies

Description

Masks are encouraged and appreciated, but not mandatory for this event.

For as long as there have been moving pictures, there have been thrilling adaptations of great literary works. Then fiction writers returned the favor with their own obsessions over moviemaking. Selected Shorts celebrates the eternal romance between page and screen with an evening of spellbinding short fiction that was catnip to screenwriters, along with tales that bring to life our passion for showbiz.

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.
