This week, This American Life will bring you their most ambitious live show ever. They pulled together a massive team of theater pros at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Opera House – with nearly 50 singers, actors, dancers and musicians. The result? Journalism turned into a Broadway musical, into opera, and into plays.
Special guests will include Lindsay Mendez from the Broadway hit Wicked, Sasheer Zamata from Saturday Night Live, comedian Mike Birbiglia and many more.
You can hear that live performance Saturday at noon on NWPR's News service, or Sunday at 7 p.m. on your Classical service. You can find your frequency here or stream it on our homepage. We also have an iPhone app, as well as an Android app, so you can be sure you won't miss it.
