Tickets on sale for public radio's 'Radiolab' live at the Michigan Theater

By Bob Needham

Public radio show / podcast "Radiolab" has announced a live tour in the fall, including an Oct. 7 date at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor.

As described on its website, "Radiolab is a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience."

The live tour, "Apocalyptical," promises an interesting experience: "Cataclysmic destruction. Surprising survival. In this new live stage performance, Radiolab turns its gaze to the topic of endings, both blazingly fast and agonizingly slow. With their signature blend of storytelling, science, and music, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich romp through hundreds of millions of years of history to arrive at the end, again and again. With a cinematic live score created before your eyes by On Fillmore and Noveller, the evening will be a thought-provoking and laughter-inducing dance on the grave of our inevitable demise."

Tickets cost $35 or $45 ($44.65 and $54.90 with service charges). They are now on sale, available via Ticketmaster.

"Radiolab"'s regular episodes can be heard via podcast, on its website, and sometimes over the air on WUOM (91.7-FM).
