Lance Baker in Mike Daisey’s THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS Comes to Berwyn, 1/10-2/9

Jeff-award winner Lance Baker takes on Mike Daisey's The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs January 10 – February 9, 2013 at North Berwyn Park District's 16th Street Theater, 6420 16th Street in Berwyn, with a press opening of Thursday, January 10 at 7:30 PM. The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs is the first show in 16th Street's Season Six 2013: The American Dream.

News out of China continues to remind us that Mike Daisey's scathing expose of technological labor practices has lost none of its power and relevance. The most controversial theater piece of 2012, TATESJ is an updated and "ethically made" version which the New York Times hailed as "even more powerful, funny, and engaging."

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 former CEO of Apple and his obsessions shape our lives, while following the trail all the way 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.
