A couple of generations after that, Sam Walton founded the superstore chain everyone loves to hate: Walmart. While Waltons action of building his chain of stores up from nothing is as American as apple pie, the giant corporations habit of undercutting prices in order to drive small retailers out of business isnt good for anyone in the community except Walmart, of course.
And what do Walmart, Monopoly and the Tesla-Edison rivalry all have in common? They are each a key ingredient in acclaimed storyteller Mike Daiseys Monopoly!, a monologue about, well, monopolies. Daisey will perform Monopoly! tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater in University Hall on the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs campus, 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway; the show runs through Sunday, March 29.

March 25-28, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., March 29, 4 p.m., 2009
