LOS ANGELES - Selected Shorts, the popular radio show and podcast, returns to the Getty Center for three performances on March 24 and 25, hosted by Jane Kaczmarek. Be warned, the weekend series offers decadent fiction that will make you forget your calorie count and order two desserts.

          Noted actors from TV, film and the Broadway stage, including Shohreh Aghdashloo, Hope Davis, Tate Donovan, Diane Guerrero, Stana Katic, Linda Lavin, and Anika Noni Rose, bring every catty celebrity chef and avowed SPAM connoisseur off the page. Whether the stories take place over steak au poivre on the crisp, white tablecloth at a five-star restaurant or huddled above a can of beans on the camp stove, they prove George Bernard Shaw’s contention that “there is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

         Selected Shorts: A Feast of Fiction is produced by New York’s Symphony Space and presented by the J. Paul Getty Museum.
