A one-man theater piece entitled, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” will be performed by Mike Daisey at the The Public Theater with previews starting on Oct. 11, with an opening set for Oct. 17. Daisey is a stage performer that has toured the country with his monologue shows.
Right now, he is currently working towards making critical adjustments to the play in regards to points of view between the relationship of Apple and factories in China.
In a release sent out this week, Oskar Eustis, the artistic director of the Public Theater, said “it is inevitable that reality and drama will intersect in surprising, sometimes uncomfortable ways. This isn’t to be regretted; it’s to be celebrated.”
