Virtual Selected Shorts: Fame & Infamy with Dylan Marron


The spotlight moves in mysterious ways…. Author, performer, and video-maker Dylan Marron (Conversations with People Who Hate Me) explores what it means to be recognized—and the thin line that separates celebrity and notoriety. With stories from Kenneth Calhoun, Tania James, Jade Jones, and Fiona Maazel and performances by Michelle Buteau (The First Wives Club), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Moses Ingram (The Queen's Gambit), John Cameron Mitchell (Shrill), Josh Radnor (Hunters), and Miriam Shor (Younger).

Our greatest actors transport us through the magic of fiction, one short story at a time. Sometimes funny. Always moving. Selected Shorts connects you to the world with a rich diversity of voices from literature, film, theater, and comedy.
