LOS ANGELES - Selected Shorts returns to the Getty Center for three performances on March 23 and 24, hosted by Jane Kaczmarek.

The classically trained, Oscar-caliber actor who brings gravitas to an enduring text. The quirky, indie darling who wrings every little laugh from a modern writer’s dialogue. Sometimes, the marriage between performer and text is undeniable—the connection is dynamic and uncanny, yet completely natural. This year’s Selected Shorts features an evening of memorable live performances with stories and storytellers sure to fit like a glove.

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