Selected Shorts: James Thurber’s World with Special Guest Roz Chast

2019 has been declared “The Year of Thurber” in honor of the great humorist’s 125th birthday. Special guests, including Roz Chast, introduce an evening of stories and art from the vast collection of this masterful storyteller, author of such comic classics as “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “The Catbird Seat,” as well as the beloved fantasy The 13 Clocks. With readings by Michael McKean (Better Call Saul) and more! Hosted by Thurber enthusiast Keith Olbermann.

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.

Actors subject to change.
