Event Details

Agony FlyerThe Agony and The Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, adapted from the Mike Daisey monologue, examines the controversy of globalization through the lens of the rise and fall and rise of Apple, and the human price we pay for our technology. The New York Times called the work, "Powerful, funny and engaging... Anyone with a cell phone and a moral center should see this show.”

The show ran in Los Angeles from February to June 2013. The Friar's Club in New York is hosting this special, one-time performance.

Praise for The Agony and The Ecstasy

Experience the uncommon power of a muckraking show [with] unflinching social relevance. A fascinating performance of Mike Daisey’s controversial monologue.  LA Weekly

Like a TED Talk on Red Bull.   Los Angeles Times

Lyras successfully walks the fine line between entertainment and preachy journalism. A wonderfully-orchestrated piece of theater.   Annenberg News

A chilling portrait of the very real human cost of globalization. Lyras educates his audience with masterful timing, deep compassion, and hard-hitting emotional engagement.  Stage & Cinema

You may be shocked to discover the moral quandary currently sitting in your pocket. A must-see.  Life in LA

Lyras made changes to the production, trimming it by about 30 minutes and visually augmenting it with a Keynote presentation. Both seem to have been wise choices. The visuals bring the words to life and provide some much-needed humor.  BC Critics
