Imagine settling into your theater seat, the lights go down, and a great story is read by some of the best actors of our time (you know, like Stephen Colbert, Liev Schreiber, or Sally Field just to name drop a few). Welcome to a night of Selected Shorts. The coming season, Shorts will be dedicating evenings to popular books and podcasts like Humans of New York, Sex Death and Money, as well as evenings hosted by favorite authors like Don DeLillo and Joy Williams, Michael Chabon, Edwidge Danticat and Sherman Alexie.

Thalia Book Club invites popular writers to come discuss their work or pay tribute to classics. We’re excited to be hosting Colum McCann in support of his new collection, a night celebrating David Rakoff with tributes and readings from his friends, Mary-Louise Parker with her literary debut, and Michael Ian Black’s new humor collection.

Check out all of the upcoming season and get tickets here.
