Selected Shorts goes to Paris

This weekend Selected Shorts features three stories by French writers: “A Parisian Affair” by Guy de Maupassant, performed by Rene Auberjonois (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), “Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow” by Faiza Guene, performed by Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street), & “The Secret of the Old Music” by Auguste de Villiers de l’Isle Adam, performed by Philippe de Montebello (former director of the Metropolitan Musuem of Art). I won’t be on this episode, but I’ll be listening in. Check your time/station & if you’re in NYC, join us this coming Wednesday at Symphony Space, where there will be a special recording of Selected Shorts, celebrating the 40th anniversary of  Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, featuring Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Anthony Rapp (Rent, Dazed and Confused) & Scott Shepherd (Elevator Repair Service’s Gatz at The Public).
