The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs by Mike Daisey

The Public Theater presents the New York premiere of The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, created and performed by Mike Daisey and directed by Jean-Michele Gregory.

The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs opens at The Public Martinson Theater on 17 Oct 2011, following previews from 11 Oct, and runs through to 13 Nov 2011.

In The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs Mike Daisey turns his wit to America’s most mysterious technology icon. He illuminates how the CEO of Apple and his obsessions shape our lives, while sharing stories of his own travel to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPods.

The design team features scenery and lighting by Seth Reiser.

Mike Daisey's (Creator and Performer) monologues include 'The Last Cargo Cult,' 'How Theater Failed America,' the six-hour epic 'Great Men of Genius,' 'All Stories Are Fiction,' and '21 Dog Years.' His next monologue will be 'All the Hours in the Day,' a 24-hour performance that charts the epic story of America’s essential character as a weaving together of puritanism and anarchism, which will be performed at the Time Based Art Festival in Portland, and the Under the Radar Festival in New York.
