Selected Shorts: Maulik Pancholy, Natasha Rothwell & Liev Schreiber

Saturday, April 10 at 7:30 pm

This is a virtual performance being curated specifically for the Academy of Music Theatre. One night only!

Selected Shorts, the popular radio show and podcast, returns to the Academy of Music for an evening of comic short fiction. Host Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock) is joined by Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), and Natasha Rothwell (Insecure) to perform lighthearted and reflective tales of everyday human folly by classic and contemporary writers.
