Mike Daisey’s latest one-man show, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs is open for business as it begins previews at the Public Theater on October 11. The limited engagement will officially open on October 17, directed by Daisey's longtime collaborator Jean-Michele Gregory.
In The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, Daisey wraps his formidable wit around America's most mysterious technology icon in what's described as a "hilarious and harrowing tale of pride, beauty, lust and industrial design." Daisey illuminates how the late Apple CEO and his obsessions shaped our lives, while sharing stories of his own travels 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.
The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs will run through November 13.
