TBA '08: Mike Daisey's "If You See Something, Say Something" - Performance -

How fitting that on the seventh anniversary of 9/11, monologist Mike Daisey culled all of these changes together -- and to great comic effect -- with "If You See Something, Say Something," the second show he's performed as part of this year's Time-Based Art Festival. He bookends his story by recalling a visit he made to the Trinity Site in New Mexico's White Sands Missile Range, where the first atomic bomb was tested in 1945. One day each year it is open to the public, and Daisey describes the surreal experience, from the contracted soldiers to the strange souvenirs, and one incredibly awful hamburger.
