Lane Series Presents: Mike Daisey

Mike Daisey: Khan and the Whale

The brilliant and controversial monologist Mike Daisey returns to Burlington, this time with a performance honoring the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek. In his hilarious, insightful, and inimitable way, Daisey takes on Herman Melville’s masterpiece of revenge, fate, and whaling terminology in a hilarious and breathtaking ninety minutes. Weaving Melville’s epic saga Moby Dick together with the greatest and most perfect film [in his opinion] of the twentieth century – STAR TREK II: The Wrath of Khan, Daisey explores the language and power of Moby Dick as well as the birth of the movie franchise and the lasting legacy of Star Trek. Ultimately he connects these two epic tales in a sweeping story of revenge, ornate nautical slipknots, tattooed harpooners, and creative genius.
