Selected Shorts: Too Hot For Radio

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It's an evening of Selected Shorts you won't hear on public radio. We're showcasing amazing stories that, due to language issues or content advisories, are, well, too hot for radio! Join actors Hope Davis, Neil Patrick Harris, John Cameron Mitchell and host Aparna Nancherla as they read aloud humorous and saucy stories that are just a little too edgy for that hour on Sunday following Car Talk. Hosted by comedian and podcast host Aparna Nancherla. Selected Shorts is a radio show and podcast 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. $45/$35, All Ages  Co-presented by LitQuake
