Please Pick Mike Daisey | Newcity Stage:

Most famous for harshly accusing regional theater of betraying its local actors (in his typically blunt monologue “How Theater Failed America”), Mike Daisey is one of the most visible monologuists around—and one of the most provocative.

(Other monologues have covered monopoly, the cold war and great men of genius.)
