Of all the books we're that would become a live stage show Freakonomics (or rather the sequel Superfreakonomics) is a pretty unlikely choice, but it's happening, and it's touring the UK in June.
Sadly it's only Stephen Dubner, not the double act of Dubner and Levitt that's appearing. Dubner's the journalist not the economist, so it's not the full show that happened in the US.
Superfreakonics hasn't had the same impact in the UK as the original, probably because of the much-disputed 'climate change' chapter.
Also, it's not on in London, which is a bit strange.
