Normally the coming season would be filled with a diverse array of live performances by music, theater and dance artists. But these are not normal times.  We are adapting to the current circumstances and looking forward to the day when audiences and artists can return to our theaters and concert halls and once again engage in that singular co-creative experience that is live performance.

In the meantime, we are at work assembling a program of unique performances and dialogues to share with you over the coming months.  So, please join our email list to receive announcements of upcoming events.

Selected Shorts at Connecticut College: Stories Across Borders

Streaming Virtual Event

Thursday, 11 March 2021



 The hit public radio series Selected Shorts comes to Connecticut College to share dazzling short fiction from across the globe. With stories about parenthood, love, loss, and identity, authors Julia Alvarez, Lesley Nneka Arimah, Alfred Döblin and Laura Chow Reeve reveal that we are united by our joys, fears, grief, and triumphs. With performances by Kate Burton (Grey's Anatomy), Laura Gómez (Orange Is the New Black), Russell G. Jones (Tommy), and Jennifer Lim (Jade Dragon).

 Our greatest actors transport us through the magic of fiction, one short story at a time. Sometimes funny. Always moving. Selected Shorts connects you to the world with a rich diversity of voices from literature, film, theater, and comedy.

The performance is no longer available for viewing.
