Clea was invited last week to take part in NPR and PRI's podcast recording of Selected Shorts, recorded in front of a live audience at Symphony Space. Selected Shorts has had their stories read by such actors as Cynthia Nixon, John Lithgow, Cambpell Scott, Parker Posey, Jill Eickenberry, Alec Baldwin, and Steven Colbert to name just a few. Clea was honored to be included among such a prestigious group of actors.
It was a thrilling night of storytelling for both the actors and the audience. The theme of the night was Downton Abbey and all the stories were of the time period or in the style of the show. There was even an appearance by the head write of Jimmy Falon, A.D. Miles, who introduced and played an episode of Jimmy Falon's Downton Abbey spoof, Downton Sixbey. Along with A.D. Miles, Clea took the stage alongside BD Wong (the host of the evening), Jim Dale (Harry Potter audio books and Pushing Daisies), Jayne Houdyshell (Follies, Bye Bye Birdie), and Knopf design guru Chip Kidd.
