Here are two photos of the Selected Shorts Night.

Sounds like it was a great night.
We have to say, last night was a pretty amazing way to end the 2016 Selected Shorts year. HUGE thanks to Billy Porter, Kathryn Erbe, Jane Kaczmarek and our host (and reader) Paul Giamatti. Honestly, it's impossible to say who was the favorite, they were all so great. And a special thanks to The New York Review of Books who were great partners on this night. We're back on stage in January with a night hosted by Richard Price.

Selected Shorts On Stage

Paul Giamatti Curates Stories from The New York Review of Books

December 7, 2016 at 7:30 pm
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space

Between takes on the set of Billions, Paul Giamatti will sift through stories from the collections of Auden, Chekhov, Saki, du Maurier, Hardwick, and more to present us with an evening of fiction from what Oliver Sacks called “one of the great institutions of intellectual life here or anywhere.” 

Performers include Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Billy Porter (Kinky Boots), and Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). 

Produced in cooperation with the NYRB Classics

The NYRB Classics series is dedicated to publishing an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction from different eras and times and of various sorts. The series includes nineteenth century novels and experimental novels, reportage and belles lettres, tell-all memoirs and learned studies, established classics and cult favorites, literature high, low, unsuspected, and unheard of. NYRB Classics are, to a large degree, discoveries, the kind of books that people typically run into outside of the classroom and then remember for life.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.
Premium tickets are available and include a $50 tax-deductible donation to Symphony Space.

Dating my Mother

Kathryn joined the new indie film project of Dating My Mother. The filming will start next week (August 22) in New Jersey.

Variety - Kathryn Erbe, Kathy Najimy to Star in Comedy ‘Dating My Mother’ by Dave McNary:

Kathryn Erbe, Kathy Najimy, James Le Gros, Paul Iacono and newcomer Patrick Reilly will star in the new comedy “Dating My Mother.” Shooting will start Aug. 22 in New Jersey.

Mike Roma is directing from his own screenplay, which explores the intimate and sometimes tumultuous relationship between a single mother, played by Erbe, and her gay son (Reilly). Together they navigate the world of online dating as they search for their versions of “Mr. Right.”

Le Gros co-stars as Erbe’s love interest, Najimy as her neighbor, and Iacono plays the potential boyfriend of Reilly’s character.

“Dating My Mother” is Roma’s directorial feature debut, following his web series “Danny the Manny.” The film is produced by Ashley Hillis, and executive produced by Roma and Reilly.

Erbe starred for 10 seasons of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

She is repped by Innovative Artists; Le Gros is with Industry Entertainment; Najimy is represented by Abrams Artists Agency, Iacono is repped by Michael Einfeld Management and Reilly is with 44 West Entertainment.

NewNowNext - Mother And Son Dive Into The Dating Pool Together In “Dating My Mother”
What's a gay guy to do when his mom is getting more action than he is? by Dan Avery 

Navigating the dating scene can be difficult for any young gay man—trying to do it alongside your mom is downright treacherous.  

In Dating My Mother, a single mom (Law & Order: Criminal Intent’s Kathryn Erbe) and her gay son (newcomer Patrick Reilly) are both on the hunt for Mr. Right. 

We’ve got high hopes for the film, which starts shooting next week: In addition to its talentent leads, Dating My Mother features James Le Gros (Girls) as a love interest for Erbe’s character, out actor Paul Iacono (The Hard Times of RJ Berger) as a potential boyfriend for her son, and gay fave Kathy Najimy as the family’s neighbor. 

It’s the first feature film from writer-director Mike Roma, who charmed us with his web series, Danny the Manny

Kathryn at One on One with Steve Adubato & THE FATHER gets One Week Extension

Kathryn gave an interview yesterday. Let's hope the One on One with Steve Adubato people will publish it online soon.

Frank Langella-Led THE FATHER get One Week Extension at Manhattan Theatre Club

Manhattan Theatre Club's American premiere of The Father, the new play by Molière Award winner Florian Zeller, with a translation by two-time Tony Award winner Christopher Hampton (Sunset Boulevard, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, God of Carnage) and directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, Outside Mullingar, City of Conversation) will extend by one week at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The limited engagement, which opened on April 14 to critical raves, has been extended through Sunday, June 19.

Frank Langella received his seventh Tony nomination for his role in The Father and was awarded the 2016 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Actor in a Play. Langella is also nominated for the 2016 Drama Desk Award and will be honored at the 2016 Drama League Awards for this performance. The Father has been nominated for the 2016 Tony Award, Drama League Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

Below is a sample of what New York critics had to say about this new production starring three-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee Frank Langella joined by Tony Award nominee Kathryn Erbe ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent," The Speed of Darkness), Brian Avers(Rock 'n' Roll, The Lieutenant of Inishmore), Charles Borland (A Man for All Seasons), Drama Desk Award nominee Hannah Cabell (Pumpgirl at MTC, Grounded), and Kathleen McNenny(Fish in the Dark, An Enemy of the People at MTC).

"Powerful and darkly humorous. Playwright Florian Zeller is a rising star." -Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News

"Frank Langella gives a must-see performance." -Jesse Green, New York Magazine

"Frank Langella, with that sonorous voice and commanding presence, not only holds the stage, he owns it. When you're not hanging on his every line and gesture, you may stop for a moment to try and study how he does it. But don't bother because his performances are seamless and when he slips into a role, the actor evaporates leaving no trace." - Roma Torre, NY1

"Frank Langella Devastates. Under the confident direction of Doug Hughes, Florian Zeller's The Father has aspects of both a thriller and an absurdist comedy, and something more poignant than either." -Alexis Soloski, The Guardian

Now 80 years old, André (Frank Langella) was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne (Kathryn Erbe) and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pajamas, and he can't find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he's losing control.

The creative team for The Father includes: Scott Pask (scenic design), Catherine Zuber(costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design), Fitz Patton (original music and sound design), and Jim Steinmeyer (illusion consultant).

Lead support for The Father has been provided by MTC's Producing Fund Partner, Andrew Martin-Weber.

Over the past four and a half decades, MTC productions have earned numerous awards including six Pulitzer Prizes and 19 Tony Awards. MTC has a Broadway home at the Samuel J.
