Mike Daisey’s latest one-man show, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, has extended its off-Broadway run at the Public Theater by three weeks. The show, which began previews on October 11 and opened on October 17, will run through December 4 rather than November 13.
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 is directed by Daisey's longtime collaborator Jean-Michele Gregory.
