Mike Daisey

Mike Daisey turns his razor-sharp wit to America's most mysterious technology icon in this hilarious and harrowing tale of pride, beauty, lust, and industrial design. He illuminates how the CEO of Apple and his obsessions shape 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 dangerous journey shines a light on our love affair with our devices and the human cost of creating them.

"I will never be the same after seeing that show."
Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder

“The best new American play of the year so far.”
Peter Marks, WASHINGTON POST

“The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” ranks alongside “Follies” as the most exciting show in town. Mr. Daisey is an awesomely gifted stage performer.”
Terry Teachout, WALL STREET JOURNAL

“Anyone who sees Mr. Daisey’s show — and anyone with a cellphone and a moral center should — will find it hard to forget. A mind-clouding, eye-opening exploration of the moral choices we unknowingly or unthinkingly make.”
Charles Isherwood, NEW YORK TIMES

“A personal, poignant and passionate piece that stays with you. Mesmerizing.”
Mark Kennedy, ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Ambitious and heartfelt—a gutsy adventure. The comic performers Daisey most resemble are the pure, political, and profane stand-up greats—Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, and, above all, Bill Hicks—whose best performances are convulsively funny and deeply unsettling.”
Daniel Smith, SLATE
