A new play about tight-ship-running Apple CEO Steve Jobs is set to be staged at California's Berkeley Theatre early next year, penned by one of America's leading playwrights.
The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs is to be staged in Berkeley in January 2011, with writer Mike Daisey having been praised by the New York Times in the past as being "the master storyteller" and "one of the finest solo performers of his generation."
Daisey will not be performing his monologue, however, with another performer still to be charged with that daunting role.
Real-life Willy Wonka
Berkeley Rep describes that play as Daisey diving "into the epic story of a real-life Willy Wonka whose personal obsessions profoundly affect our everyday lives—and follows the trail to China where millions toil in factories to create iPhones and iPods.
