Compared to a modern-day Mark Twain and a latter-day Orson Welles, Mike Daisey is the preeminent monologist in American theater today. In his latest work, the Maine native takes on Herman Melville’s masterpiece of revenge, fate, and whaling in a hilarious and breathtaking 90 minutes. He does so by weaving together Melville’s epic saga with the “greatest and most perfect” film of the 20th century—STAR TREK II: The Wrath of Khan. Ornate nautical slipknots, space worms that crawl into your ears, tattooed harpooners, and Ricardo Montalban’s rich Corinthian leather chest all combine with Melville’s gorgeous language to tell a sweeping story of revenge and at what temperature that dish is best served (spoiler alerts: the answer is “cold” and the whale wins).

The master storyteller—[Mike Daisey is] one of the finest solo performers of his generation.”
