How’s Giving Away All Your Money Working Out for You, Mike Daisey? -- Vulture:

There are so many reasons to see The Last Cargo Cult, Mike Daisey's fascinating, trenchant, and very funny new monologue, before it ends its ten-day run at the Public on Sunday. There are his very timely thoughts on the pyramid scheme that is (or was) finance, musings on the meaning of money, and — most entertaining — his magazine-feature-worthy account of a nine-hour celebration on a remote Pacific island whose denizens literally worship the American armed forces and the "great shit" they brought over from the States during World War II. Finally: If you don't like it, you can keep Mike Daisey's money.
