Mike Daisey’s solo show The Trump Card will return to New York City for one performance November 1 at 8 PM at Town Hall (123 W. 43rd Street).

This performance will be the last time the monologue about Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump will ever be performed by Daisey; the evening will be live-streamed by Slate.com. Created and performed by Daisey, the show features direction by Isaac Butler and is presented by Barrow Street Productions in association with The Public Theater.

In The Trump Card, Daisey, according to press notes, “takes on the reigning world heavyweight of self-mythologizing, the short-fingered vulgarian who captured a nation’s heart through bullying, charm, one-syllable explosions, and occasionally telling the brutal truth: Donald J. Trump. Daisey tells Trump’s story from his earliest days, tracking him as he makes himself into a new American archetype—the very first rich man famous exclusively for being rich. Instead of dismissing Trump as a simple con artist and huckster, Daisey breaks down what makes Trump tick—and in doing so illuminates the state of our American Dream and how we’ve sold it out.”

This summer The Trump Card had a run at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater before going on tour to the Guthrie Theater, La Jolla Playhouse, Woolly Mammoth and more.

Tickets are $50 (plus service fee) and can be purchased online at www.TicketMaster.com.
