Beloved and brilliant ex–hometown boy Mike Daisey returns with an extended run of his beloved and brilliant monologue exploring "monopoly and its discontents," from Edison and Tesla's war over electricity to the long, scary shadows cast by Microsoft and Wal-Mart. If you've seen Daisey perform, you know his signature marriage of personal obsession and historical observation is relentlessly, deeply entertaining. If you've never seen Daisey perform, what the hell's wrong with you? (Capitol Hill Arts Center, 1621 12th Ave, 7:30 pm, $20 adv/$25 DOS. Through Feb 3.)
