This American Life host Ira Glass has been working with Monica Bill Barnes & Company to invent a show that combines two art forms that - as Glass puts it - "have no business being together - dance and radio." One is all words and no visuals. One is all visuals and no words. The result is a funny, lively and very talky evening of dance and stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. "What makes it work," says Glass "is a shared sensibility. As dancers, Monica and Anna are these amazingly funny storytellers without words."Mar 6 - Mar 7Andre Watts plays Beethoven 5
