Inspired by Isaiah Sheffer’s Selected Shorts at Symphony Space, LIKELY STORIES (formerly known as Celebrity Readings) is an evening of storytelling; great short stories are “performed” by celebrated actors.

This year’s event features local luminaries Charlie Pollock, Ami Brabson and Emily Zacharias. LIKELY STORIES will take place on Monday, March 28, at 7:30 p.m. at the Columbia High School Auditorium in Maplewood.

CHARLIE POLLOCK just closed in Lazarus, David Bowie’s off-Broadway musical at the New York Theater Workshop. Pollock’s Broadway credits include Violet, The Wild Party, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Urinetown and 9 to 5. He recently received a Helen Hayes nomination for his performance in Elmer Gantry. His television credits include The Good Wife, As the World Turns, and Law & Order.
