Buy 3 or more Selected Shorts events and save! Discounts available for both in-person and livestream tickets.


Radiolab is on a curiosity bender, and Selected Shorts is here to help! They ask deep questions and use investigative journalism to get the answers; we present great short fiction read by great actors. Join Radiolab hosts Lulu Miller and Latif Nasser as we team up for an evening of mind-bending, fantastical stories. With performances by Abubakr Ali (Anything's Possible), Becca Blackwell (Survival of the Thickest), Molly Bernard (Younger), and Zach Grenier (Ray Donovan).

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.

Actors subject to change. Casting and special guests will be announced on our website. Please check back for up-to-date information.
