Seattlest: Alt.Bumbershoot - Sunday:

Mike Daisey - Monopoly
This was our highlight of the day. We'd never seen Mike Daisey before, but had heard about his monologue based on Amazon life. He's hilarious. Monopoly is incredibly well crafted, setting up a number of diverse narrative threads and then slowly bringing them all together in unexpected ways. It's not all laughs (though his reaction to MS Word's "helpfulness" is worth the price of admission) -- there's poignancy, too. Fanfreakingtastic!
