Tomorrow is Bloomsday, the day chronicled in James Joyce's Ulysses. And for the 25th year, Symphony Space has a full Bloomsday on Broadway celebration, focusing on "on Mr. Leopold Bloom's spiritual son, Stephen Dedelus (aka James Joyce), with readings from Ulysses, Portrait of the Artist and Dubliners." The events start at noon tomorrow, and the final performance is the inimitable Fionnula Flanagan reading Molly Bloom's monologue (aka, "The Fully Molly") at 10PM till whenever she finishes.
Tickets are $20, with discounts for seniors and students. Symphony Space will also have readings of work by Samuel Beckett ("Joyce's spiritual offspring"), in honor of Beckett's centenary. And in Dublin, official Bloomsday events have been cancelled due to former Prime Minister Taoiseach Charles J Haughey's state funeral.
