Selected Shorts at Symphony Space

I keep meaning to take in a Selected Shorts performance, and now it seems that the final program in this year's series is upon us. And look, Robert Sean Leonard, who I had a crush on back in the day from his work in Dead Poet's Society and Swing Kids, will be reading a Jonathan Lethem story that I've heard great things about. So I'm a-goin'. Anyone interested in going? Here's an excerpt from the website:

The final evening of the Selected Shorts season features four diverse tales of things lost and found.“The Spray” by Jonathan Lethem, read by Robert Sean Leonard, “Hanwell in Hell” by Zadie Smith, read by actor David Strathairn, “Death of the Right Fielder” by Stuart Dybek, read by Stephen Lang and “The Fine Art of Sighing” by Bernard Cooper, read by actor Isaiah Sheffer, explores the deep joy in sighing, a mysterious occurrence on the baseball field, a spray that makes missing things appear and a daughter's growing understanding of her father.

The performance is May 25th at 6:30pm, on a Wednesday night and the tickets cost like $25.

perhaps a cupcake and a pre-diabetic can prove a happy combination after all.

Darling, are you speaking in proverbs again?

I'm inviting Johan because we bonded over Selected Shorts at The Bayou.

Perhaps we'll make a happy group outing of it!
