Ira Glass, Monica Bill Barnes & Anna Bass
Ira Glass is the beloved host and creator of the public radio program This American Life, an extraordinary show that is often the most popular podcast in America. Glass has said that radio and dance “have no business being together.” Yet, he teamed up with the incredible choreographer Monica Bill Barnes to create a wonderfully delightful new show. Also featuring dancer Anna Bass, “Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host” is an exceptionally funny, lively and talky evening of entertaining and unexpected convergences. You wonít want to miss this illuminating event! Join us on Saturday, January 31, at 7 p.m. in Bovard Auditorium. For more info, click here.
