PRE-FESTIVAL EVENT! May 16 & 17 only
Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
Directed by Jean-Michele Gregory
Mike Daisey is the preeminent monologist in the theater today, hailed by the New York Times as “the master storyteller” and called by many a modern-day Mark Twain. In American Utopias he explores how we create public spaces where we act out our dreams of a better world. Daisey takes us everywhere to pursue the story: from Disney World and its nostalgic theme park perfection, to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of Burning Man, to Zuccotti Park, where in the unlikeliest place the Occupy movement is born. Gunplay, giant glittery dildos, raving animatronic presidents, and brutal police actions come together to paint the landscape of the American dream. mikedaisey.blogspot.com
“Hilarious, raunchy, and profound.”
“Superb…Mike Daisey is a keen cultural observer with a ruthless streak.”
“If you think there’s something better to do with your evening than listen to a man talk for two hours on an empty stage—well, there isn’t. It’s part journalism, part theater, and completely sensational.”
