I forgot to mention that Mike Daisey's INVINCIBLE SUMMER, which I highly recommend, is in its final six performances. It's a story about Mike's move to New York City just after his marriage, just before 9/11, and just before his parents suddenly and bafflingly divorced. In the process it becomes a dazzling take-you-everywhere riff that includes the history of the New York subway, the nature and origins of Mike's odd and fascinating marriage, and---really---the best 9/11 story I've ever heard: not self-pitying, not self-aggrandizing, just a real moment-by-moment account of well-analyzed bewilderment. Come and see how to do it right.
And it's at the Public now, rather than Collective: Unconscious, so the stairs are safe. Go!
Oh, by the way, there was an article a few days ago in the New York Times about Mike and Jean-Michelle Gregory, his director and his wife, which is a lot of fun to read. Here's the link.
