Capitol Hill Arts Center presents:
Mike Daisey's
Stories from the Atlantic Night Cafe
Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
Directed by Jean-Michele Gregory

ONE NIGHT ONLY! Sunday February 4th 7pm
CHAC Showroom

In this provocative series, audiences get the chance to hear one-of-a-kind stories, told for the first time and never to be repeated again. An hour before curtain, Daisey sits down backstage and creates a one-page outline, usually drawing on the events of that week, and when the lights come up he opens his mouth to tell the tale for the first and only time. The words spoken that night will live for only as long as they are in the air, and then beyond that, only in memory and reflection. The audience discovers the story at precisely the same moment the storyteller does, resulting in a performance that defines the very idea of LIVE entertainment and creates a bond between performer and audience that is unforgettable.

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller; one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes its raw heart. The New York Times has called him, "the master storyteller" and "one of the finest solo performers of his generation," and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris.

"One of the finest solo performers of his generation."
-New York Times

"A cross between Noam Chomsky and Jack Black."
-Seattle Times

"Like a dirty Garrison Keillor."
-OffOffOff
