Symphony Space presents a screening of the hilarious weekly news quiz from NPR and Chicago Public Radio, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! Normally you can only experience the show via the radio or if you can manage to attend a live taping. This month, the show is doing a live taping that will be screened in select cinemas around the country to give fans the opportunity to see the faces behind the voices we've come to know and love. Each week on the radio, host Peter Sagal along with sidekick Carl Kasell and company take a fast-paced, irreverent look at the week's events while a talented array of guest panelists compete in game show-style challenges to earn points to see who will be declared this week's winner. Guest panelists for the screening are stand-up comedian Paula Poundstone, political satirist Mo Rocca and radio personality Tom Bodett. They will be joined for the "Not My Job" segment by celebrity guest Steve Martin. Learn More

A rare New York appearance by Italian guitarist Emanuele Segre in an evening-length work about life, love, and loss, narrated by Symphony Space's very own Isaiah Sheffer with text by Nobel prize-winning Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez and music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
With hands of dazzling skill and solid technique, Emanuele Segre offers a clean sound and is known for his passionate performance style. Joined by narrator Isaiah Sheffer, the two bring to life Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's evening length work for guitar and narrator, Platero Y Yo, (1914; Platero and I) with poetry by one of Spain's most popular poets, Juan Ramón Jiménez, who won the Nobel prize in 1956. Jiménez' work is a entertaining memoir about his travels through Spain with his beloved little donkey, a profound musing on what makes us all human.
