Bostonist: Daisey Debut Hits Ground Running:

Mike Daisey was the first to note that there were a few messy spots in his Tuesday night performance of "Tongues Will Wag," the monologue debuted to a rapt American Repertory Theatre audience at the Zero Arrow. He remarked upon that fact as soon as the standing ovation applause subsided.

He was right. "Tongues Will Wag" has a few rough patches - an overly used reference here, a missed identification there. But for a monologue never before spoken, let alone performed, the work was a beautiful two hours of performance that served as a fitting close to Daisey's month-long, three-monologue Cambridge residency.
