Bloomsday on Broadway at 40


Symphony Space celebrates Bloomsday on Broadway, our annual salute to James Joyce’s masterpiece, Ulysses. The evening opens with authors Diana Abu-Jaber (Silverworld), Michael Chabon (Moonglow), Regina Porter (The Travelers), and Colm Tóibín (Brooklyn), in a discussion and Q&A with the audience about this famously complex work. Then we partner with the astonishingly inventive theater company Elevator Repair Service for performances from the novel by actors Daphne Gaines, Maggie Hoffman, Vin Knight, April Matthis, and Scott Shepherd. Directed by John Collins, Assistant Director Maurina Lioce. Tune in for this fascinating event on the literary work that cracked open the 20th century.

Bloomsday on Broadway is produced in cooperation with Irish Arts Center.

This event is dedicated to Isaiah Sheffer, who loved James Joyce’s words, created Bloomsday on Broadway, and made it magical for 30 years.

This event is available to view with the Symphony Space 20/21 Season Pass.
