About Levar Burton and Friends

Selected Shorts teams up with storyteller extraordinaire LeVar Burton (Roots, Star Trek: TNG, Reading Rainbow). His work on television and with literature has inspired us for years. The host of the hit podcast LeVar Burton Reads will curate an evening of his favorite short stories -- from the tragically hilarious to the magically mysterious. Burton takes the stage as host and reader for a memorable night of fiction.

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.
