O.K., already! Yes I said yes I will Yes! Bloomsday on Broadway, an annual celebration of James Joyce now in its 27th year, lures “avid Joyceans” to Symphony Space on the Upper West Side for a six-hour reading of the “Ithaca” episode from Ulysses (oh, God, suddenly we miss Fashion Week), featuring Stephen Colbert and Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan of Transamerica taking their turns with dozens of other smarty-pants performers. Bring whiskey.
