Steve Jobs show to premiere this month

Meanwhile, the popular obsession with the Apple boss continues with an off-Broadway production, Notes Toward the Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, which is set to be staged later this month.

Gossip website Gawker reports that popular demand for playwright Mike Daisey’s monologue about Jobs, which was not scheduled to be staged until next year, will preview for one night only on 22 April.

According to Daisey, his monologue concerns “Steve Jobs’ rise and fall and rise, Apple, industrial design, and the human price we are willing to pay for our technology, woven together in a complex narrative”.

Daisey also clearly indicates his Apple fan-boy status on his site, declaring of his show: “This one is for the old-schoolers: If you cut me, I always bleed six colors.”
