Fans of the popular radio quiz show "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!" have an opportunity to watch the show live Thursday in select movie theaters.
It's the first-ever cinecast of the NPR show, hosted by Oak Park resident Peter Sagal.
"We do the show live in front of an audience every week [usually in Chicago]," Sagal said. "Sometimes we do it in various cities. Rockford was our last road trip. This time we're going to do it in a theater on the campus of NYU in Manhattan, and we're going to broadcast it live to movie theaters all over the country, including those in Chicago."
The show starts at 7 p.m. (CT) Thursday. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased here. A re-broadcast will be shown at certain theaters on May 7.
Sagal and official judge and scorekeeper Carl Kasell will be joined by panelists Paula Poundstone, Mo Rocca and Tom Bodett to play the quiz in front of a live audience.
"Carl reading limericks! Celebrity guests answering stupid questions! Faces made for radio!" promotional materials read. "You've heard it in 1D, now see it live in glorious...2D."
