We have to say, last night was a pretty amazing way to end the 2016 Selected Shorts year. HUGE thanks to Billy Porter, Kathryn Erbe, Jane Kaczmarek and our host (and reader) Paul Giamatti. Honestly, it's impossible to say who was the favorite, they were all so great. And a special thanks to The New York Review of Books who were great partners on this night. We're back on stage in January with a night hosted by Richard Price.

Paul Giamatti Curates Stories from The New York Review of Books
December 7, 2016 at 7:30 pm
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space
Between takes on the set of Billions, Paul Giamatti will sift through stories from the collections of Auden, Chekhov, Saki, du Maurier, Hardwick, and more to present us with an evening of fiction from what Oliver Sacks called “one of the great institutions of intellectual life here or anywhere.”
Performers include Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Billy Porter (Kinky Boots), and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent).
Produced in cooperation with the NYRB Classics
The NYRB Classics series is dedicated to publishing an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction from different eras and times and of various sorts. The series includes nineteenth century novels and experimental novels, reportage and belles lettres, tell-all memoirs and learned studies, established classics and cult favorites, literature high, low, unsuspected, and unheard of. NYRB Classics are, to a large degree, discoveries, the kind of books that people typically run into outside of the classroom and then remember for life.
Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. 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.
Premium tickets are available and include a $50 tax-deductible donation to Symphony Space.

“One in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime,” according to press notes. “This documentary play moves past the noise of the current political climate and focuses on the people who receive and provide abortion care. Exclusively composed of interviews and stories submitted to the 1 in 3 Campaign, this play is soulful, funny, and at times challenging. Remarkably Normal reveals the stories behind the statistics.”
All proceeds go to the National Network of Abortion Funds.
