Mike Daisey Returns to Woolly Mammoth So People Who Knew Who He Was Back Before That This American Life Episode Aired in January Can Throw Stones at Him If They Want

Wait, wait, I'm still apologizing! Don't start the music yet!

Mike Daisey appeared for a one-hour public Q & A session last night at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, the place where his controversial monologue The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs was born — or, to use his creepy syntax, “birthed.”

It was an interesting hour highlighted by a fascinating exchange near the end, which I reproduce in my Washington City Paper Arts Desk post about it.

  1. Read your article, very interesting, as are the comments too.
    The bigger question here is what we will accept. We’ve all had our say on Daisey now, but to insist on his immediate departure to Timbuktu won’ help. I agree with the Wooly decision in that it’s best to keep him around for the conversation, given that he was the person who forced these issues (although I think there’s another motivation on their own behalf). Nobody ever faced trial from a prison cell. We don’t like what he did, we don’t admire his work but he gives us a frank account of human greed, and where it can take us. that is a story worth hearing!
