“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”
— Doug Deuchler, Wednesday Journal of Oak Park
