PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Nora McInerny


You know how every day someone asks “how are you?” And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say “fine,” so everyone can go about their day? Not this show. The Terrible, Thanks for Asking podcast is the opposite of that. Nora McInerny asks real people to share their complicated and honest feelings – sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and sometimes both at once.

Terrible, Thanks for Asking LIVE is a spectacular, theatrical presentation of the podcast with live music and multimedia storytelling of an unpublished episode. On-stage narration from Nora, audio clips and beautiful, bold visuals bring the audience through the signature Terrible, Thanks for Asking emotional journey. Nora will also present a selection from her newest book, No Happy Endings and sign your copy (books available at the show)! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you won’t want to miss the human connection. Or the sack of rare coins secretly placed under one seat in the auditorium. Is that a real thing??? YOU’LL NEED TO BE THERE TO FIND OUT.

Online processing fees are assessed on a per ticket basis. No refunds or exchanges. Any orders found over the posted ticket limit will be voided without notice.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Ami Vitale - Photojournalist
Rhinos, Rickshaws and Revolutions


Experience our world through the eyes of an award-winning photographer whose career has brought her face-to-face not just with violence and conflict, but also with surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. Ami Vitale’s work has taken her to more than 90 countries. She’s lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit—all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.”

Early in her career, her focus was on conflict, such as the war in Kosovo, and the border dispute between India and Pakistan. Her first National Geographic story documented the last rickshaws in Kolkata, India. More recently, she has turned her lens to wildlife stories, including efforts to reintroduce white rhinos and pandas to the wild. Her coverage of Kenya’s northern white rhinos, and the indigenous communities working to protect them, earned her World Press Photo recognition in 2015.

Vitale’s career has taught her that stories about nature and wildlife are also stories about people—and that, at the same time, “you can’t talk about humanity without talking about nature.” She’ll share her personal odyssey, told through the images and adventures that have transformed her into a celebrated global photojournalist.

Online processing fees are assessed on a per ticket basis.
