The Starry Night | Created and Performed by Mike Daisey

Saturday June 26th, 2021 - 7:00PM

Location : The Kraine Theater, New York, NY

Mike Daisey explores an indelible image from the mind of a tortured and failed artist. From college dorm rooms to MOMA keychains, from oil and canvas fakes to artificial intelligence, Daisey peels back the layers of this image and its signifiers in a hilarious evening about the ecstasy of art and our constant discontent.

Mike Daisey, who has been called “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by The New York Times, is the preeminent monologist in the American theater today.

Praise for Mike Daisey at the Kraine:

"He is outstanding. These were startling and stirring words, the kind that hogtie your attention. They are worth having Daisey, and live theater, back for."

The New York Times

"I felt home again—listening to a talented storyteller spin a version of a year not entirely unlike the one I had just spent, felt really, really good."

The Washington Post

"Amid all the laughs, there’s a lucid lesson here. Mike Daisey singlehandedly redefines the concept of mansplaining. He strips the practice of its condescension and defensiveness and turns it into a conscientious and humble discipline of self-examination as a man."
