Ira Glass, producer and host of public radio's This American Life, counterintuitively combines the worlds of dance and radio in this live stage production. Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host features the informative, moving essays and nonfiction stories listeners expect from Glass' Peabody Award-winning radio show. But he turns his trademark all-talk format on its ear by collaborating with contemporary dance troupe Monica Bill Barnes & Company. It's an unexpected evening filled with poignant audio clips and leaps and turns. Or, as Glass puts it, two art forms that "have no business being together." Learn More
If you don't want to be called on to be part of the show, sit in the section closest to the entrance. Very back seats are excellent b/c it is elevated and you get a full view of the stage. They also have a concession stand with popcorn and drinks at very reasonable costs that you can eat during the show.La Soiree info • Apr 02 2014 star this tip starred

This was a show that I went into not really sure what to expect. A Silent Comedy with Acrobatics and Gymnastics just didn't click for me but to my surprise it actually made a lot of sense. It was a fun show to watch and for some people, participate in. I would recommend this show to anyone that doesn't take themselves too seriously and enjoys a fun experience that you can easily share with your kids.

Describing this show as "one part kung-fu flick" and "a rare opportunity to see the kind of action you'd see in Jackie Chan and The Matrix™ movies" is false advertising. This is a children's show geared more like the Power Rangers.

JUMP isn’t just about jumping. It’s also about flipping, punching and major butt-kicking. There are no second-takes, wires or special effects for these actors, who have gone through years of extensive martial arts training.
This international hit takes place in a traditional Korean home, although its inhabitants are anything but — the entire family challenges each other in martial arts and acrobatic displays. These skills are put to use when burglars break in and get to experience the family’s talent firsthand.
