The hosts of Radiolab, the nationally syndicated WNYC public-radio show turned podcast, specialize in weaving anecdotal stories and science into documentaries rich with music and sound. In fact, by delving into profound curiosity and the human experience, Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, who can be heard on 450 NPR stations, have accrued such a following that they are now doing a series of live shows across the country.
They’ll be in Denver tonight and tomorrow night to explore the topic of “endings” in Apocalyptical, a live stage performance that offers a gaze into demises — from the blazingly fast to the agonizingly slow. There will also be a cinematic live score created by the bands On Fillmore and Noveller, and comedy support from NPR’s Ophira Eisenberg.
Radiolab Live begins at 8 p.m. both nights at the Paramount Theatre, 1621 Glenarm Place; tickets, starting at $35, are available at paramountdenver.com and the Paramount box office.
Fri., Nov. 1, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 2, 8 p.m., 2013
