The Connecticut Post Online - Daisey's "Invisible Summer" comes to town:

Mike Daisey has turned storytelling into a form of theater that has been amusing and exciting audiences around the country for the past decade.

Daisey explores wide-ranging material drawn from his own life and his observations of American culture in shows that have dealt with everything from his own employment at (during the dotcom boom) to the unexpected links between P.T. Barnum and L. Ron Hubbard.

The 33-year-old performer has been called the heir to legendary New York radio monologist Jean Shepherd, as well as "a cross between Noam Chomsky and Jack Black."
