THIS AMERICAN LIFE TAPED LIVE WITH HOST IRA GLASS
THIS AMERICAN LIFE TAPED LIVE WITH HOST IRA GLASS
Sunday, May 27
7:30 pm
$12/$10 members
Runtime: about 2 hours
Ira Glass, host of WBEZ Chicago's critically acclaimed radio show This American Life, returns to movie screens nationwide with This American Life - Live!, a special live performance on Thursday, May 10.  The Rosendale Theatre will rebroadcast the show on May 27 at 7:30 pm.
Taped at the Skirball Center at New York University, Glass will present stories by writer David Rakoff, comedian Tig Notaro and Snap Judgment host Glynn Washington. Together they will perform a live stage version of the radio show, centered on the theme "The Invisible Made Visible." The performance will also feature a new short film by Mike Birbiglia, live music by the rock band OK Go, a dance performance by Monica Bill Barnes & Company, original animation and illustration, and special surprise guests.
"I saw this amazing dance performance by Monica Bill Barnes' company, and I thought - that is totally in the style of our radio show," said host Ira Glass. "But obviously you can't have dance on the radio. Then I realized, we have to do another cinema event! We've built this lineup of stories mixed with super visual things, including the dancers I saw that night, so it's going to feel like the radio show but also totally unlike anything we've done before. I really can't wait to see how it turns out."
This American Life is a weekly hour-long radio program which debuted in 1995 on WBEZ Chicago. Now distributed by Public Radio International, it is broadcast to more than 500 radio stations reaching 1.7 million weekly listeners. Often the most popular podcast in the country averaging more than 750,000 weekly downloads, the show has won major broadcasting awards including the Peabody, duPont-Columbia and Edward R. Murrow Awards.  In 2001, Time Magazine named Glass the "best radio host in America." From 2007-2008, a television version of This American Life aired on Showtime, winning three Emmy Awards.
Alisa Miller, president and CEO of Public Radio International (PRI) said, "Previous This American Life digital cinema events have been as lively, entertaining and amazing as the radio show. Ira Glass is a master storyteller on the radio and in this new live show, Ira promises to add new dimensions to that art form.  As the organization that brings diverse perspectives to public media, PRI is proud to support this digital cinema event, and all of Ira's work."
