Symphony Space Fall Line-Up for Families

Time to start planning NYC cultural event for you family. We know you don't live here for the roomy apartments and wide open vistas--so be sure to make the most of what NYC has plenty of arts and entertainment for your kids. We think the Just Kidding Performances at Symphony Space should be marked in pen on your calendar.

October’s Just Kidding weekly lineup at Symphony Space includes nationally acclaimed family music artists, zany sketch comedy and breath-taking acrobatic acts. To make life easy, Symphony Space offers “create your own” subscriptions to the 2010-11 Just Kidding series. Additionally, members of Symphony Space enjoy up to 40% in discounts on ticket prices.
