Ira Glass to go multiplex?

We love us some Ira Glass, the bespectacled narrator of This American Life who's fast becoming a one-(wonderfully geeky)man media empire. Ira and his show have already conquered radio and TV (and mugwear...); now they're toying with taking on theatres.

This from the latest TAL e-newsletter:
"We're planning a This American Life stage show that would be filmed and sent live — live! — via satellite to movie theaters across the country. It would include Ira performing a radio piece, never-before-seen stories and outtakes from the second season of our TV series, audience Q&A, and more."

Sounds intriguing. They're looking for input on how to pull it all off. Take a short survey here.
