Fodor's Review

Although Symphony Space runs an energetic roster of classical, jazz, international, and 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. There's also a popular comedy series, Uptown Showdown, as well as Performance in HD screenings from the National Theatre Live, Royal Shakespeare Company, and Royal Opera House. Plays, films, and "Thalia Docs" on Sunday (usually true-to-their-roots art-house screenings) round out the adult programming. For the family, turn to the hugely popular Just Kidding lineup for a nonstop parade of zany plays, sing-alongs, midday Saturday (and sometimes Sunday) movies, and animation.
