Steve Jobs play in Hollywood opens Feb. 20

The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs — A great story, made even better! Alex Lyras stars in the Los Angeles premiere of Mike Daisy’s The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs in an update revised by the author that is “ethically made” and packs an even more powerful punch. Daisey’s powerful monologue examines the controversy of globalization through the rise and fall and resurrection of Apple, illuminating how Apple’s former CEO and his obsessions shape our lives. It follows the trail all the way to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPads, and shines a light on the human price we pay for our high-tech toys. “Anyone with a cell phone and a moral center should see this show.” – The New York Times
