The World's Stage Theatre Company presents: The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs
by Mike Daisey
May 31 - June 2, 2013
Directed by Alan Piotrowicz
In The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, Mike Daisey turns his razor-sharp wit to America's most mysterious technology icon in a hilarious and harrowing tale of pride, beauty, lust, and industrial design. The piece illuminates how the former CEO of Apple and his obsessions shape our lives, while following the trail all the way to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPods. Daisey's journey shines a light on our love affair with our devices and the human cost of creating them. After over 200 performances in 18 cities over 19 months by its original author, the show has had over 35 productions and been translated into six languages. Now with its 2.0 release, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs is sharper and stronger — the New York Times called it “more powerful, funny, and engaging” than ever — and is ethically made. Of the original production, Michael Moore wrote, “Mike Daisey, in addition to providing us with a riveting, hilarious, but ultimately gut-wrenching piece of theater, may actually end up being singularly responsible for bringing Goliath to its knees.” For more information, visit www.stevejobsplay.com.
