One Night Only!

All humans aspire to do good, until we realize just how boring goodness really is. Whether poets, plebes or presidents, it’s our naughtiness that sells the most papers, and our wickedness for which we’re remembered. (And after all, who would you rather have a beer with, Mother Theresa or Mae West?).

On November 15th, Selected Shorts ventures into the realm of the impolite, the mischievous, and the generally ungovernable with an evening of stories about those who consider what’s right and still do wrong. Andy Borowitz (The New Yorker, The Borowitz Report), whose satirical headlines zero in on politicians and other citizens prone to bad behavior, plays host and arbiter of good (and bad) taste. Performers include Judith Ivey and Amy Ryan.

Party with Andy Borowitz after the show!

Join us for the performance and a post-show reception with Andy and support our literature, music, film, family, and arts education programs.
