Playbill News: Daisey's If You See Something Say Something Filmed at Joe's Pub:

Filmmaker Steve Anderson will release a film of Mike Daisey's latest monologue If You See Something Say Something, which is currently playing Joe's Pub.

Peabody award-winning filmmaker Anderson, who wrote and directed the feature film "The Big Empty" as well as the documentary film "Fuck," is currently filming If You See Something Say Something at Joe's Pub and aiming for a future movie release.

Daisey's collaborator, Jean-Michele Gregory, directs the work, which began performances Oct. 15 and will continue through Nov. 30 at the Public Theater's intimate cabaret space.

Known for his politically and socially charged works, Daisey "investigates the secret history of the Department of Homeland Security through the untold story of the father of the neutron bomb and a personal pilgrimage to the Trinity blast site," according to press notes. "If You See Something Say Something takes us on a journey in search of what it means to be secure and the price we are willing to pay for it."
