The first night of Mike Daisey's 29-night live theatrical novel, ALL THE FACES OF THE MOON, recorded September 5th, 2013 at the Public Theater. Our story opens on a perfect day with the Mechanical Turk and a fortune interrupted, then quickly turns to Red Hook and the Disneyification of New York, Al Capone's wedding, Tony Kushner's early promise, the rise of the Small Man, the importance of bed in all narratives, the illusionary Dutch people, and an unexpected meeting at the edge of the river just before dawn.
