Although Symphony Space runs an energetic roster of classical, jazz, international, and many other kinds of music, it also excels with many other kinds of art programming. On the literary front, its two halls—the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre and the Leonard Nimoy Thalia —host a celebrated roster of literary events, including Bloomsday on Broadway, the Thalia Book Club, and the famed Selected Shorts series: stories read by prominent actors and broadcast live
on National Public Radio. Plays, films, and Thalia Docs on Sunday (usually a true-to-its-roots art-house screening) round out the adult programming. For the family, turn to their hugely popular Just Kidding lineup for a nonstop parade of zany plays, sing-alongs, midday Saturday (and sometimes Sunday) movies, and animation.
