Mike Daisey: One-Man Show
PHOTO: Peter Dylan O¿Connor
Mike Daisey’s ”Monopoly!” may be the only nightclub act ever to center on the relative merits of alternating and direct current. In his monologue, Daisey describes the eccentric genius Nikola Tesla and his part in the feud with Thomas Edison over the two forms of electricity. In the process he explores corporate rule, life according to the dictates of profit and loss, the Microsoft antitrust lawsuit, Wal-Mart’s impact on Daisey’s hometown, and the secret history of the board game Monopoly.
