Santa Fe, NM – The Lensic proudly presents acclaimed monologist Mike Daisey in his latest one man show, “The Trump Card,” on September 19, 2016, at 7:30 pm. Tickets start at $20 (TicketsSantaFe.org).
Known for “The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” “The Last Cargo Cult,” and “The Secret War,” Daisey returns to The Lensic, this time exploring the unexpected political rise of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump—or as Daisey calls him, “the reigning world heavyweight of self-mythologizing; the ‘short-fingered vulgarian’ who captured a nation’s heart through bullying, charm, one-syllable explosions, and occasionally telling the brutal truth.”
Daisey tells Trump’s story from its earliest days, tracking the candidate as he makes himself into a new American archetype: a man famous simply for being rich. Daisey breaks down what makes Trump tick—and in doing so illuminates the state of our American Dream and how, he believes, we’ve sold it out. Paper Magazine says, “Daisey’s skill is that he is able to talk about the historical and make it human, the personal and make it universal, so that the listener is both informed and transformed.”
