THREE ACTS, TWO DANCERS, ONE RADIO HOST -
IRA GLASS, MONICA BILL BARNES, ANNA BASS
October 11, 2014
Monica Bill Barnes & Company and Ira Glass, host of This American Life, combine two art forms that – as Ira puts it – “have no business being together – dance and radio.” “People who like This American Life will probably like this,” says Glass “because it’s just like the radio show, um, if you picture dancing during all the stories.” The result is a funny, lively and heartfelt evening to be remembered.
