Symphony Space Announces Full Programming for 2021-22 Season

Symphony Space will welcome audiences back into its New York City home this season for a wide range of memorable events that take place for one night only, and only at Symphony Space. Tickets are on sale now at symphonyspace.org.

The institution's first in-person presentation since March 2020 is a quintessential Symphony Space production: a stellar event in its renowned literature-in-performance series Selected Shorts, which engages celebrated actors to read classic and new short fiction before a live audience. Selected Shorts: A Night at the Theater, hosted by Tony-winning Tootsie star Santino Fontana, gathers Krystina Alabado, Kathleen Chalfant, Hugh Dancy, Claire Danes, and Peter Francis James to read stories about the triumphs and heartbreaks of life in the theater, on October 6. Since the start of the program in 1985, Selected Shorts has welcomed performers including Stephen Colbert, Morgan Freeman, Greta Gerwig, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Zosia Mamet, John Cameron Mitchell, Cynthia Nixon, Anthony Ramos, Anika Noni Rose, and Meryl Streep, to name just a few. The podcast and syndicated public radio broadcast reach hundreds of thousands of listeners worldwide. Additional Selected Shorts evenings this season feature Jesmyn Ward introducing selections from The Best American Short Stories 2021 (October 20); Claire Messud & James Wood for the 50th anniversary of the literary journal Ploughshares (November 9); Mike Birbiglia & J. Hope Stein (December 8); and Alison Stewart (February 16, 2022).

In Symphony Space's Thalia Book Club, readers and writers meet for intimate conversations about compelling new books and favorite classics in fiction, essays, memoirs, and more. This season, the series features John Lithgow and A Confederacy of Dumptys, with Matthew Rhys (October 8); Kirstin Valdez Quade and The Five Wounds, with Brit Bennett (October 25); Elizabeth Strout and Oh William!, with Alexander Chee (October 28); Kal Penn and You Can't Be Serious (November 2); Sarah Ruhl and Smile: The Story of a Face, with Cynthia Nixon (November 10); Amor Towles and The Lincoln Highway (December 7); Colson Whitehead and Harlem Shuffle, with ZZ Packer (December 14); and Gish Jen and Thank You, Mr. Nixon (February 23, 2022).

Special literary events include Emmy-, Grammy-, and Tony-winning actor Billy Porter reading from-and discussing with director Tina Landau-his memoir Unprotected, on October 19. Writer Wajahat Ali and friends such as Min Jin Lee come together on January 25, 2022, for a program of comedy, storytelling, and music bringing to life his book Go Back to Where You Came From: And Other Helpful Recommendations on How to Become American. Friends of Symphony Space-and of each other-Roz Chast, Patricia Marx, Suzzy Roche, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Meg Wolitzer join forces in Everything But Dancing!, an evening of storytelling, song, and art, on March 22, 2022.

Hosted by Matthew Love, the popular Symphony Space comedy debate series Uptown Showdown invites two teams of funny folks from the worlds of stand-up and late-night television to tackle topics of great importance to pop culture. The verbal sparring and all-around absurdity only stop when the audience decides the winner. Past participants include Maria Bamford, Wyatt Cenac, Ronny Chieng, Hasan Minhaj, Aparna Nancherla, Bowen Yang, and many more. Uptown Showdown continues this season with "Style Vs. Sweats," on November 30.

Symphony Space will host three award-winning music luminaries in 2022 as part of its annual Music Residencies program that has included artists such as Béla Fleck, Nadia Sirota, Rhiannon Giddens, and The Magnetic Fields: Grammy nominated saxophonist, bandleader, and composer Ravi Coltrane (February 3-5, 2022); eleven-time Grammy nominee Meshell Ndegeocello (February 24-26, 2022);

and Grammy-winning and two-time-Emmy-nominated American songster Dom Flemons (April 28-30, 2022).

Music programming this fall also includes Revelry concerts by Cillian Vallely and Kevin Crawford of the Irish band Lúnasa (October 29), Mile Twelve (November 11), Lollise (December 9), Cumbia River Band (January 21, 2022), and Alea (March 17, 2022).

Throughout its history, Symphony Space has produced all-day, free Wall to Wall marathons of music by composers including Leonard Bernstein, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Stephen Sondheim. On May 14, 2022, the institution celebrates the 50th music event in the series-and meets the occasion with a joyful tribute to multi-hyphenate Quincy Jones.

On March 26, 2022, Symphony Space bridges two signature series with Wall to Wall Selected Shorts, the organization's first literary Wall to Wall. For this monumental free event, Symphony Space has commissioned 35 new short stories from authors including Michael Cunningham, Edwidge Danticat, Dave Eggers, and Carmen Maria Machado, all of which will be included in the forthcoming book Small Odysseys: Selected Shorts Presents 35 New Stories (Algonquin Books, March 15, 2022). Actors TBA alongside commissioned choreographers, musicians, performers, and filmmakers including Heidi Latsky, Leonardo Sandoval, Lakecia Benjamin, Laura Gibson, and Adam Douglas Thompson will bring the stories to life.

In the 2022 edition of its annual Bloomsday on Broadway (June 16, 2022), Symphony Space celebrates the centenary of James Joyce's Ulysses with a newly commissioned production from Elevator Repair Service (ERS), the company behind Gatz and other thrilling theatricalizations of literary classics.
