Selected Shorts on Tour: The Bankhead Theater in Livermore, CA


Selected Shorts presents an evening of stories about the ways lives intersect in mysterious, poignant, and hilarious ways. Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep), Jane Kaczmarek (The Changeling, Malcolm in the Middle), and Mara Wilson (Welcome to Night Vale, Matilda) perform classic and contemporary tales of entanglements.

Our greatest actors transport us through the magic of fiction, one short story at a time. Sometimes funny. Always moving. Selected Shorts connects you to the world with a rich diversity of voices from literature, film, theater, and comedy.

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, Anika Noni Rose will no longer appear at this performance.

Actors subject to change.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space in New York City 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.

Expected Run Time is 120 minutes
