Ever Wondered How Negative Ad Campaigns Started? Find Out at Main Street Theatre
Main Street Theater's mission is to create theater that challenges its audience to think and its artists to grow. We accomplish this by presenting an articulate and compelling product in an intimate setting, creating significant employment for Houston-based artists, and memorable theatrical experiences for audiences of all ages.
With that in mind, Main Street Theater presents the Daisy, a play based on the most infamous commercial ever conceived: the “Daisy” ad. It is the fall of 1964. With a presidential election looming, a group of advertisers working for Lyndon B. Johnson unleash the “Daisy” ad. This ad played only once, but it carved a scar deep into the American psyche.
Based on actual people and events, Daisy explores the power of manipulation and the moment in television history that launched the age of negative ad campaigns — and forever changed how we elect our leaders.
We invite you to join us for the outstanding performance, but please keep in mind that children under the age of five are not allowed in the theater.
At Aria at Rollingbrook Apartments in Baytown, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
