Mike Daisey is the preeminent monologist working in theater today, hailed by The New York Times as “the master storyteller” and called by many a modern-day Mark Twain. 

In American Utopias he explores how we create public spaces where we act out our dreams of a better world. Daisey takes us everywhere to pursue the story: from Disney World and its nostalgic theme park perfection, to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of Burning Man, to Zuccotti Park, where in the unlikeliest place the Occupy movement is born. Gunplay, giant glittery dildos, raving animatronic presidents, and brutal police actions come together to paint the landscape of our American dream.

'American Utopias': From Disney World To Zuccotti Park
In his new one-man show, American Utopias, award-winning monologist Mike Daisey ties together three unlikely places: Disney World, Zuccotti Park — the home base of the Occupy Wall Street movement — and the annual arts event Burning Man. Read more.
