Admitted conflict of interest here (I'm performing) but amongst non-sanctioned geniuses I highly recommend seeing Charles and Joe Wengert this weekend (everybody that I know of in this is good, but those dudes are world-class)

I still think the Agony and Ecstasy performed live by Mr. Daisey is a theatrical piece designed to get the audience to consider that people make what they consume. I found it a simple goal well accomplished.
That said, how people consume theatre is highly subjective; the space that exists in an audience mind, the area in which a piece is completed is infinite. And as the audience for this particular show expanded, and the mode for telling the piece changed (losing his physical presence in exchange for more viewers) the piece itself changed even as the text remained the same. Kudos to Brendan for anticipating this; at the time I thought his review missed the point.

@12 The proof is in what pudding? The fact that they mounted a show because it was popular in the past does not prove that it is worthwhile in the present. That said, I do like pudding. Pretty ironic of me, huh?
