Ira Glass and team created a wonderful spectacle worthy of (hopefully) additional similar live
shows. Despite this being their second such outing, it felt like the show got off to a slow/clunky start, but within the first 15 minutes or so, there were fewer technical issues and people in the theatre where we were watching the broadcast clapped as if part of the local NY audience--engaged with the show to the point that we all felt as if we were there. Tig Notaro and Glynn Washington were the stand out performances, and I really loved OK Go's mobile app / music experiment (even their Nirvana cover / warm-up was a giant success!). I was also delighted by Monica Bill Barnes & Company. This was the first time I had seen them perform and was blown away. I was a little disappointed with the performances by some of the regular, big names--Birbiglia and Sedaris mainly--while their pieces were good, I really expected more and better...and I felt these to be a little flat.
