BIG MOUTH ARTSY SCHMARTSY:
Mike Daisey ruffled some feathers a couple of months back when he wrote an article in a Seattle newspaper claiming that the American theater machine had basically failed on delivering the American theater dream to the nation. Not only had they failed, he said, but they were essentially sticking it to the artists who were giving their lives to the stage. Is Mike just an angry guy? Far from it. This guys loves him some theater, and when you here him talk to me this week, you'll know that he is smart, cagey, and forward thinking. Mike doesn't have all the answers, but who does?
