Mike Daisey, called "the master storyteller...one of the finest solo performers of his generation" by the New York Times, sinks his razor- sharp wit into a subject he knows well: the American theater. 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. Each Sunday, a roundtable forum with theater luminaries including Robert Brustein, Gregory Mosher, Jim Nikola and Oskar Eustis will follow the performance.
