PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL and CHICAGO PUBLIC RADIO's "THIS AMERICAN LIFE" will be heading to movie theaters on MAY 1st for a one-time-only live performance.
Host IRA GLASS will be live at the SKIRBALL CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS at NEW YORK UNIVERSITY for "THIS AMERICAN LIFE -- LIVE!," with the event shown in high definition at theaters nationwide by NATIONAL CINEMEDIA's FATHOM EVENTS. The show will include extra stories and outtakes from the SHOWTIME TV version of the show, which is set to enter its second season on MAY 4th.
"We're always looking for a new way to do a great, fun event," said GLASS. "And it's exciting to think we could do that event in hundreds of cities simultaneously. With popcorn. Usually our fans don't get to enjoy our show with popcorn."
