Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host with Ira Glass

Previous Next

Ira Glass tells stories, and dancers bring them to life in front of your eyes.

That’s what you can expect from this unique show, which began its tour in 2013 at Carnegie Hall.

The show includes radio interviews restaged as dance pieces, featuring dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, plus stories from all three performer’s lives.

Act I: The job of being a performer
Act II: Falling in love, and what it means to stay in love
Act III: Nothing lasts forever

“People who like This American Life will probably like this,” says Ira, “because it’s just like the radio show, um, if you picture dancing during all the stories.”
