Selected Shorts returns to Longwood Gardens bearing a bouquet of short stories about the wonders of nature. Just in time for Earth Day, Selected Shorts will present verdant tales that will appeal to bookworms, arborists, and anyone who likes to stop and smell the roses. No green thumb required! Hosted by Jill Eikenberry, with performances by Richmond Hoxie and Michael Tucker.
Due to illness, Zach Grenier will be unable to perform at this event.
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.
