Ira Glass with dancers? You read it right. The irrepressible host of This American Life has taken to the road with choreographer Monica Bill Barnes & Company for a marvelously quirky show combining two art forms that, as Glass puts it, “have no business being together – dance and radio.” The result is a hilarious, lively and very talky evening of dance and captivating stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. “What makes it work,” says Glass, “is a shared sensibility. As dancers, Monica and Anna are these amazingly relatable and funny storytellers without words.”
