Mike Daisey Questions the Los Angeles Theatre Community:

As part of his five day series at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in mid-March, theatre monologuist and provocateur Mike Daisey moderated a community roundtable between eight diverse leaders in the LA theatre community and a full house of several hundred theatre artists, patrons and supporters.  Held after a sold-out performance of his famed monologue, HOW THEATER FAILED AMERICA, Mike asked a series of pointed and probing questions to the panelists and audience members, hoping that the monologue and the roundtable would provide a basis for ongoing dialogue and action in the theatre of LA in this time of change in our country.
