SELECTED SHORTS: JAMES THURBER'S WORLD WITH SPECIAL GUEST ROZ CHAST

  • Peter Norton Symphony Space 2537 Broadway at 95th Street New York, New York, 10025 United States (map)

2019 has been declared "The Year of Thurber" in honor of the great humorist's 125th birthday. Keith Olbermann hosts an evening of stories and art from the vast collection of the masterful storyteller, with special guest Roz Chast. Readings by Michael McKean, Kristine Nielsen, and Susannah Rogers.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 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.
