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

This is a fabulous deal for alcoholics! I arrived at 6:50PM for 7PM showtime. Tables weren't set up yet, but we got drink tickets for the bar. Any drink was included, so we each got a signature (normally $14) cocktail. Quite strong! We seated ourselves around 7:15, show started closer to 8PM. Servers took our order for the main dish (choice of 3: pasta with lobster, roasted chicken, or mushroom risotto). They then passed out drinks to everyone, a variation on a Dark & Stormy. Arugula salads were next. Then a spiced rum & orange bitters drink. Then the entrees, then an alcoholic Arnold Palmer, and finally a shortbread/fruit & whipped cream dessert. All the food was actually quite good, and there was no way any of us were going to finish 4 very strong drinks!
Now for the show...it was loosely based on James Bond, with acting so bad it was humorous. There were many long breaks in the show (so the actors could learn their lines perhaps? We saw many rehearsing with scripts). There were a few burlesque numbers, One acrobatic duo stood out as quite talented.
So, 4 drinks, 3 courses, a few stripteases, and a fun night overall.
The menu for this event includes an appetizer, a choice between one of three entrees and dessert, in addition to three drink pairings. There is table service.
