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

I am never disappointed and somewhat in awe of the artistry, the fluidity, the grace, the athleticism, the wit, and sometimes the mystery of Paul Taylor's Dance Company. Each piece (Brief Encounters, The Word, Arden Court) was unique and of a different flavor. The contrasts were wonderful. The staging minimalistic and right to the point of the best in contemporary dance. I am sorry we don't see them more often.
