How Theater Failed America

Mike Daisey sinks his razor-sharp wit into his workplace in a monologue about theatre, failure, passion and hope. In this controversial piece he makes his case that theatre has lost its audiences and its way by valuing buildings above artists, growth over artistry, and corporations over individuals. The Washington Post called the monologue “ . . . a funny, surprisingly supple performance about life in the theatre, the ecstatic highs and the aching, humiliating lows, rendered here with explosive humor and a dark edge of tragedy.”
