Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host...

"Half of you probably know who I am, the other half, you were dragged along by your partners, well, you first half, you'd better be giving your partners' sex tonight as a thank you, because it’s a Tuesday night for God's sake..."

Last night Stuart and I went to see This American Life radio host Ira Glass and dancers Monica Bill and Anna Bass perform a weird and wonderful show called Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host at the Royal Festival Hall on London's glitzy South Bank, and it was disjointed, but conjoined, and weird, and wonderful, and did exactly what it said on the tin, on a fairly bare stage, but for a couple of mobile theatrical curtains, in front of which Ira played us some of his radio interviews whilst talking about such diverse topics as Riverdance, focus groups in marriages, aging dancers and poetic death, and Monica and Anna danced, and the anecdotes were very funny, and the dancing beautiful, oh and there was some audience participation too, and bubble machines, and confetti guns, and balloons, lots and lots of balloons, and it was great, and weird, and wonderful. With lots of commas.
