Bloomsday on Broadway XXXVI

June 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Friday, June 16 | 7 PM
The 36th annual literary rite of spring celebrating life, love, and language in James Joyce’s lavish, languid, and lively prose.
At Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway
Co-produced by Symphony Space and Irish Arts Center

For over a decade, Joyce’s great work was famously banned throughout the United States. This year’s Bloomsday features authors, actors and devoted Joyceans performing readings from the offensive, subversive, obscene, political, sexual and heretical elements of Ulysses. Featuring a Whirlwind Tour of all 18 chapters of Ulysses, hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, as well as an exploration of the court battles and impassioned efforts to save or condemn Joyce’s contentious book, hosted by author Kevin Birmingham (The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce’s Ulysses).
Performances by:
Malachy McCourt
Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds)
Valorie Curry (The Tick)
Sam Underwood (Fear the Walking Dead)
Edoardo Ballerini (Quarry)
Carolina Ravassa (Overwatch)
and more!
