Chicago Theatre cancels Mike Daisey performance, Q&A with Ira Glass

The Chicago Theatre has cancelled an April 7th performance of Mike Daisey’s “The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” which was to be followed by an on-stage Q&A with Ira Glass:

“Please be advised that the performance scheduled to take place at The Chicago Theatre on April 7, 2012 has been cancelled. Tickets ordered for the April 7, 2012 performance through Ticketmaster Phones or Ticketmaster Online will be automatically credited to the original purchaser’s credit card account. Tickets purchased through a Ticketmaster Outlet or through The Chicago Theatre Box Office must be returned to the original point of purchase for a full refund.”

Gee, I wonder why.

Some other theaters will run the show as planned and not issue refunds.

Thanks to reader Patrick for the tip.

Notes On Camp

Every summer, PRI re-publishes my all-time favorite episode of This American Life, Notes On Camp, as an episode of the show’s podcast. Host Ira Glass tries to bridge the gap between “camp people,” those who adore the camp experience, and “non-camp people,” or those who just don’t get it.[1. For the record, I’m a non-camp person.]

No matter which side  you’re on, I promise you’ll love this episode. It’s a stellar way to spend 60 minutes. Enjoy.
