Selected Shorts: Dance in America
About Dance in America
Legendary dancer and choreographer Carmen de Lavallade, Bebe Neuwirth (Madam Secretary), Tony Shalhoub (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), and Tony Yazbeck (On the Town) perform rich and eloquent works about the beauty and magic of American dance, inspired by the new collection Dance in America. Hosted by Patricia Kalember (The Tick) and featuring the debut of a commissioned dance piece choreographed by Gabrielle Lamb of Pigeonwing Dance.
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.
