The Spoleto Buzz: New Reviews:

From editor Stephanie Barna:

I got to see Mike Daisey's Monopoly! last night. A great show. I love this guy. I saw him last year, and I think I liked this year's monologue even better. Monopoly interweaves a whole host of stories — Tesla and Edison, WalMart, Monopoly, Microsoft — in a way that makes perfect sense. Daisey bemoans: Microsoft Word is like a really intrusive girlfriend. 'Are you sure you spelled that right? Do you want to make a list?....  and wonders why it can't just behave like an "electric typewriter." Funny, poignant, and well worth the price of admission. Jennifer Corley's review should be along soon....
