TAL Live

On Thursday, May 10th, 2012, we will perform an episode of This American Life on stage at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York City and beam it live via satellite to more than 500 movie theatres around the US and Canada! We did a show like this in 2009, and were blown away when 50,000 people came out to see it. A lot of you have asked us if we’ll be doing it again.

So yeah, we’re doing it again!

Live on Thursday, May 10th at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT (tape delayed to 7:00pm MT/ 8:00pm PT). Some theatres will present encore screenings on Tuesday, May 15th at 7:30PM (local time). []

Tonight’s TAL Live show will feature performances by: Ira Glass, David Sedaris, David Rakoff, Tig Notaro, Glynn Washington, plus live music by OK Go, a new short film by Mike Birbiglia, dance by Monica Bill Barnes & Company, and many more special surprises. Find tickets here.
