Tales about scribes and bookworms take the spotlight as Selected Shorts comes to the New York State Writers Institute with a suite of stories celebrating writers and their readers. Join us for an evening of artists finding unexpected inspiration and bibliophiles of every stripe experiencing the power of the written word...for better and for worse! With readings by Jane Kaczmarek, Anthony Rapp, and Alysia Reiner.
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.
