50 words: AMERICAN UTOPIAS by Mike Daisey at Seattle Rep

In one of his most polished, searching, and relevant works, a resurgent Mike Daisey identifies and compares powerful strands of utopianism in Burning Man, Disney World, and the Occupy movement. At nearly 2 ½ hours with no intermission, the work is vintage Daisey energy. Downside: excessive profanity diverts from story.

Each performance of AMERICAN UTOPIAS ends outside with a final invitation from Daisey to stay involved and be more than just an audience.
