Are you interested in winning two FREE tickets to Texas Performing Arts’ “Mike Daisey: The Last Cargo Cult” for Sept. 21 or 22 at 8 p.m.?

In the comments section below, write your favorite university tag line: Hook ’em, Horns; What Starts Here Changes the World or make up your own. Your comment will act as your submission to the contest. We’ll take all of the names in the comments section below, and draw one lucky winner out of a hat.

Hurry! We’re only accepting comments received from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (CDT) today (Thursday, May 20).

About the show: Hailed by The New York Times as “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation,” Mike Daisey’s extemporaneous monologues skewer, illuminate and ultimately celebrate our world with equal parts humor and heart. Monologues like Tongues Will Wag, If You See Something Say Something and How Theater Failed America have become classic staples in Daisey’s repertoire. Read more about “Mike Daisey: The Last Cargo Cult” on the Texas Performing Arts Web site.
