Ira Glass w/ Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass
116 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, WI, 53203
Since 1995, Ira Glass has been the sympathetic host of the public radio stories compendium “This American Life,” and for much of that time he has been making live appearances, usually behind some version of a lecture explaining how “This American Life” is created. For his latest program, though, he’s trying something a little different. He’s teamed with dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass for an evening of stories and dance that promises his usual mix of comedy and pathos, only with a lot more visual flair and a few props, including batons and sparklers.
