Better Than Listening in the Car

Jane Curtin will be reading at the Mahaiwe on July 19

The folks at NPR like to use the term “driveway moments” to describe what happens when listeners stay in the car in the driveway (or parking lot) because they don’t want to miss one word of what they are listening to. I would bet that more of these driveway moments occur during Selected Shorts,  the series where great actors and actresses read from classic and contemporary short stories.  Now, Selected Shorts is making its inaugural visit to the Mahaiwe Theatre in Great Barrington on Saturday July 19 at 4 PM, and the readers will be Jane Curtin (who lives nearby in Lakeville, CT), James Naughton and the incomparable Isaiah Sheffer, the host and founder of the series.
If this is the first you’ve heard about it there’s a reason. The Mahaiwe did not have it listed on its website until today, because it wanted to make sure its members got first crack to buy tickets (they get a discount too) and only advertised it to them. Today, the tickets go on sale to the general public, and they are bound to go fast. And if your thinking that now is the time to buy a Mahaiwe membership ($65 and up) so you’ll know about events like this before everybody, well, Click Here.
