There Will Be No Miracles Here | Created and Performed by Mike Daisey
Tonight Mike Daisey tells a delicate, intricately braided story of found families, old grudges, and metaphysics made tangible in flesh and blood. An intricate heist story will be told that challenges our sense of what is real and what is not, all set against the impossible dancing on the head of a pin on a hot summer night.
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."
