Tonight! David Sedaris at the Kauffman Center

Mike Daisey's This American Life segment "Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory" torpedoed the radio show's credibility for a time earlier this year, but it's fair to remember that one of the program's favorite voices has always been best when the stories are wholly unverifiable. "David Sedaris has never been presented as a journalist," Alicia Shepard, former NPR ombudsman, once reminded The Washington Post. "He's a storyteller. It's acknowledged that he's making things up." And for his appearance at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (1601 Broadway, 816-994-7200) tonight, Tuesday, October 30, Sedaris has made up new stories. He locally debuts the fresh material — possibly some from his book Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls, set for release next spring — at 7:30 p.m. For tickets ($43—$52), see kauffmancenter.org or call 816-994-7222.
