Though we missed Mr. Sedaris yesterday, we’re still getting our fill of “IRL” encounters withThis American Life personalities. Today, it’s Ira Glass, the venerable NPR quirk-meister, appearing with modern dance troupe Monica Bill Barnes and Company. Before and after the dance performances, with titles like “Mostly Fanfare” and “I Feel Like”—quirk on quirk!—Mr. Glass is to speak and moderate a discussion. We have a million questions for the man whose voice makes every commute less boring, more charismatic—and so few of them are about dance!
