SELECTED SHORTS, VOL. 19 Timeless Classics

by | Read by Isaiah Sheffer, Maria Tucci, et al.

Fiction • 3.25 hrs. • Anthology • © 2005

TIMELESS CLASSICS features a few famous short stories—such as Shirley Jackson's “The Lottery”—and a couple of less familiar ones—such as Edith Wharton's “Roman Fever” and Jack London's “Make Westing.” What makes these retellings fresh is the dynamic of the live audience, with the murmurs and, at times, laughter of the crowd helping to direct readers. This gives the narrators extra energy for tour-de-force performances, whether comic, such as Isaiah Sheffer’s reading of James Thurber’s “The Night the Ghost Got In”; dramatic, such as Charles Keating's reading of Richard Connell's “The Most Dangerous Game”; or personal, such as James Naughton's reading of Raymond Carver's “Cathedral.” This production could have listeners gasping along with the Symphony Space audience.
