How Theater Failed America
Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
Directed by Jean-Michele Gregory

Master storyteller Mike Daisey sinks his razor-sharp wit into a subject he knows well: the American theater, from the sublimely crass to the genuinely ugly. From gorgeous new theaters standing empty as cathedrals, to successful working actors traveling like migrant farmhands, to an arts culture unwilling to speak or listen to its own nation, Daisey takes stock of the dystopian state of theater in America: a shrinking world with smaller audiences every year. Fearlessly implicating himself and the system he works within, Daisey seeks answers to essential and dangerous questions about the art we're making, the legacy we leave the future, and who it is we believe we are speaking to.

Mike Daisey's monologues include Great Men of Genius, Tongues Will Wag, TRUTH, 21 Dog Years, Invincible Summer and many more. He is a monologuist, author and working artist.
