I am so excited that there is an encore of the This American Life – LIVE! screening on May 7 in local theaters. I listen to This American Life every Saturday and/or Sunday and was lucky enough to see him live in Chapel Hill a few years ago. And even better, David Rakoff is included. His book, “Don’t Get Too Comfortable” is hilarious.
Due to popular demand, we have added a special encore screening of This American Life—Live!, our stage show that was beamed via satellite to more than 400 movie screens nationwide on Thursday, April 23rd! The repeat event will be showing on May 7th, and tickets are on sale NOW.
In this event, Ira Glass hosts an actual episode of the radio program, performed onstage by some of our favorite contributors. Dan Savage, Starlee Kine, and Mike Birbiglia tell stories. David Rakoff and Dave Hill conduct a ‘special investigation.’ Plus a new cartoon by Chris Ware, additional visuals by Arthur Jones, and a very special appearance by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! The performance lasts around two hours. We captured the whole thing with a bunch of HD cameras, and sent it live* to movie theatres all over the country—if you missed the event on April 23rd, or if you loved it and want to share the experience with friends, tickets are now available for May 7th.
It’s a pretty fun night. We hope you’ll come.
