Daily Rehearsal: Mike Daisey brings 'American Utopias' to the MCA

November 1, 2012

- Could there ever be another article about Mike Daisey without mention of This American Life and Apple? At least for now, no. Daisey is currently in Chicago for his piece American Utopias, which opens at the MCA Thursday, co-presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival. He'll also read at The Paper Machete on Saturday.

- Speaking of The Paper Machete, the WBEZ-podcasted reading series is officially moving to the Green Mill, after a few trial runs, in December.

- Tony Adler describes the performances of Guy van Swearingen and Kamal Angelo Bolden in The Opponent at A Red Orchid Theatre as something "fans will be wanting to say they witnessed years from now."

- There is a production about real, live roller derby at the Red Tape Theater by New Colony. Will it be as good as Whip It? Can anything really be?
