As a journalist, NPR’s All Things Considered host Ari Shapiro has witnessed wars and revolutions. Now, inspired by his experiences around the world, he takes the stage in Homeward, his first solo cabaret performance. Shapiro sings songs of upheaval, patriotism and hope, from places that are less far away than they seem. When he is not hosting America's most listened-to radio news program, Ari is a frequent guest performer with the "little orchestra" Pink Martini. He has recorded songs on four of the band's albums, in several languages, and performed with them around the world, at venues ranging from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.
