Terrible, Thanks for Asking LIVE

Terrible Thanks for Asking Podcast

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. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you won’t want to miss the human connection.

Get tickets for Terrible, Thanks for Asking LIVE at the Fitzgerald Theater on March 30, 2019 8:00 PM
