Selected Shorts salutes Ray Bradbury, credited as “the writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream” by The New York Times. Host Neil Gaiman (Good Omens) takes the stage with actors who pay tribute to the legendary author’s unearthly short fiction and its enduring influence with spellbinding readings by actors Yetide Badaki, Kirsten Vangsness, and more.
There will not be a book signing at this event.
A limited number of VIP tickets for $250 are available. These tickets includes the performance and VIP After-party with Neil Gaiman in Bar Thalia.
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.
