The hit public radio series Selected Shorts takes the stage at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center with an afternoon of festive stories filled with love, laughter, and nostalgia.
The stories are mostly fiction, sometimes classic, sometimes new, and always performed by great actors from stage and screen. With performances by Teagle F. Bougere, Jane Curtin, James Naughton, and Parker Posey!
Due to a scheduling conflict, Linda Lavin will not appear at this event.
Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space in New York City 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, with over 100,000 downloads every week. 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. Evenings are often co-hosted by writers or involve a special collaboration with literary publications, podcasts, museums, and more. Each Selected Shorts is a unique night of literature in performance.
Actors subject to change.
