After years of recording all of WordTheatre’s live performances in Los Angeles, New York and London,  our partners at The Microsoft Lounge put together an intimate cocktail party with red-carpet style publicity to announce the release of our extraordinary archive of over 650 short stories on Audible.com. Our initial release featured seven collections comprised of nine stories each. A full list of current downloads is now available at wordtheatre.staging.wpengine.com/audible with new collections rolling out every four weeks.

The short program was hosted by Bruce Vilanch with performances by:

  • Nicki Micheaux (Lincoln Heights) read “The Beginner” by Janet Fitch
  • Philip Baker Hall (Magnolia) Read “Young Man on Sixth Avenue” by Mark Halliday
  • Maggie Siff (Sons of Anarchy) read “Confirmation Names” by Mariette Lippo
  • Jason Butler Harner (Changeling) read “Flu” by Stuart Dybek
  • John Heard (Home Alone) read “In the Old Firehouse” by Ron Carlson
  • Bruce Vilanch (Emmy winning writer for Academy Awards) read “For Beds” by Matthew Vollmer

Produced and Directed by Cedering Fox.
