If you've been religiously listening to This American Life on your local public radio station for the past nearly 20 years, then you might be happy to know that host Ira Glass will be doing a live show in L.A. on June 28.

But it won't be a live-taping of This American Life; it's a new stage show that he tested out at Carnegie Hall in New York. He'll be taking his mad story-telling skills to UCLA's Royce Hall with his "Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host" show hosted by KCRW. Glass will be joined by dancers Monica Bill Barnes Anna Bass, and will be, of course, telling stories.

“People who like This American Life will probably like this because it's just like the radio show, um, if you picture dancing during all the stories," Ira Glass said.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. showing have already sold out, but there are still seats available for the 10 p.m., which range from $38.15 to $78.10. More information can be found here.
