Virtual Selected Shorts: Best Laid Plans

Bestlaidplans Main Image 1 Symphony Space2


What did you think you'd be doing this week, this month, or the rest of 2020? Our collective plans have radically shifted, and Selected Shorts is embracing the new abnormal with our first-ever digital performance, presenting short fiction about lofty ambitions and rearranged priorities. Host Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock) and actors Bobby Cannavale (Mr. Robot), Emily Skeggs (When We Rise), and Allison Williams (Girls) give voice to befuddled talking horses, unusual reform school headmasters, and more!

Virtual Selected Shorts will premiere on May 13 @ 7:30PM on the Symphony Space YouTube channel
