Jaime Castañeda to Direct THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS, Beginning 4/25 at Amphibian Stage
Amphibian Stage Productions today announced that Jaime Castañeda will direct its upcoming production of The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs by Mike Daisey, starring Steven Young. The New York-based director graduated from Fort Worth's Texas Christian University and has directed extensively in the DFW area, most recently The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Diety by Kristoffer Diaz at Dallas Theater Center, and he returns once again to helm this regional premiere.
Jaime Castañeda first worked with Amphibian Stage Productions as director of the staged readings of Credeaux Canvas by Keith Bunin and Just Because You're Paranoid (Doesn't Mean They're Not Out to Get You) by Kathleen Anderson Culebro and Trevor Gureckis in 2006. He subsequently directed Amphibian's main stage production of This Is How It Goes by Neil LaBute in 2007. In addition to directing regionally and in New York, Castañeda also serves as Artistic Associate at New York's Atlantic Theater Company.
The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs will star DFW-based actor, director, and playwright Steven Young as the solo performer in the show. Amphibian produced a reading of Young's play, The King's Face, in 2012, which Young also directed. This will be his main stage debut with the company.
The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs will also feature scenic design by Judd Vermillion, lighting design by Aaron Lentz, and sound design by David Lanza.
