Mike Daisey at Woolly Mammoth

Mike Daisey, the man behind the one-man show The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs which played at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company last year, has since had his work retracted by This American Life after it was discovered Daisey may have fabricated much of the story.

The folks at Woolly Mammoth found themselves in a bit of a quandary, as they had plans to run the show again from July 17 - August 5, 2012.  You can read Woolly's honest and cogent appraisal of their situation on their blog, but now you'll have a chance to hear it for yourself -- direct from Woolly and Mike Daisey themselves.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 7pm, Daisey will join a public forum at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company "to engage... patrons in a detailed discussion about Woolly's decision to go ahead with the scheduled remount of the production.  Mike Daisey will now join Artistic Director Howard Shalwitz and Managing Director Jeffrey Herrmann to directly address D.C. audiences and answer their questions.  The event is free and open to the public.  Please reserve your tickets with the Box Office in person or on the phone (202-393-3939)."
