Josh Young, Claybourne Elder & More Will Lead THE CRAZY ONES at Feinstein's/54 Below
In 1982, Steve Jobs was in control. His company, Apple Computer, was on top of the world: his products were changing the work and home life of hundreds of thousands of users every day, and he was exorbitantly, extravagantly rich. But something sinister was brewing underneath the surface - both at Apple, and in Steve's own mind. The Crazy Ones tells the story of the man behind the genius and how he strove to leave behind a legacy, despite some very powerful demons.
The Crazy Ones has previously been developed at NYMF, the Musical Theatre Factory, and the New York Theatre Barn.
