In anticipation of Uno Fest 2013, Intrepid Theatre brings brilliant and controversial monologist Mike Daisey to the Metro Studio with a new show: AMERICAN UTOPIAS

Mike Daisey is the preeminent monologist in the 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 the American dream.

“Hilarious, raunchy, and profound.”
Boston Globe

“Superb…Mike Daisey is a keen cultural observer with a ruthless streak.”
Chicago Tribune
