Tickets are now on sale for the upcoming season of Symphony Space’s popular trademark series, “Selected Shorts,” in which actors and literary figures read from a thematic collection of stories by major writers. The series kicks off October 4 with The Best American Short Stories 2017 with Meg Wolitzer, featuring readings by Suzzy Roche, Bhavesh Patel, and others, and concludes June 6 with “A Surprising Night of Shorts,” which, unsurprisingly, consists of surprise guests reading surprise writing. More performers will be added as the show dates approach, and there are specially priced packages available if you purchase tickets to three or more presentations.
