Q&A with Ira Glass, Mike Birbiglia, David Rakoff, and other cast members
"Every extended yarn on offer here - highlights include the tale of a blind man who becomes hopelessly lost inside a small hotel room, and a hilarious story about a fan who gets on the wrong side of former pop diva Taylor Dayne - are spun from pure gold." —News.com.au
Earlier this month, This American Life performed an episode of the radio show live on stage, and sent it via satellite to movie theaters in the US, Canada and Australia.

The show includes stories by David Sedaris, David Rakoff, Glynn Washington, Ryan Knighton, and comedian Tig Notaro, along with a new short film by Mike Birbiglia, dance by Monica Bill Barnes & Company, musical guests OK Go, animation, photography, and projected illustrations. You'll even be able to play along with an OK Go song via mobile app locatedhere.
