This American Life host and Cal Performances favorite Ira Glass makes a crowd-clamoring return to the Bay Area for an encore of his inventive Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host. Combining two art forms that — as Glass puts it — "have no business being together," the show is a funny, lively, and heartfelt evening of storytelling. The performance's three acts cover love, loss, and the job of being a performer. Glass delivers his trademark narratives, and dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass evoke characters through a wide range of silent art forms, allowing the three to produce "a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—union" (Santa Barbara Independent).
