About the Show
Selected Shorts is a live theatrical experience featuring guest actors reading stories selected specifically for each memorable event. The three to four stories are mostly fiction, sometimes classic, sometimes new, and are always read by great actors from stage, screen, and television. Selected Shorts began in 1985 and has enjoyed sold-out performances throughout its history. Produced by Symphony Space in New York City, the stories presented live at Selected Shorts are often featured on the hit public radio show and podcast, which reaches hundreds of thousands of listeners on over 130 stations and streaming services each week.
Performances feature three stories read by three actors that are based on themes tailored to suit a particular venue, community, or overall season.
