“A frighteningly timely piece of work” – The Guardian
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.
TATESJ is an updated and "ethically made" version
which the New York Times hailed as "even more powerful,
funny, and engaging."
"In this riveting new 16th Street
Theater production, Lance Baker plays the witty and wired
narrator... Captivating and intense, in
addition to being laugh-out-loud funny...
I love a show that causes me to see things differently
