Do You Use Technology? Then Don't Miss Mike Daisey's The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs. | TBA | Portland Mercury:
I have a hard time imagining Mike Daisey's The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs won't be one of the best shows at TBA this year, if not the best show. I know this TBA's still young, and that there'll be plenty of good, even great stuff to come—but goddamn. I've seen three or four performances of Daisey's over the past few years, and this is handily the best—the most powerful, relevant, funniest, and harrowing. This is a show that, if you let it, has the power to change the way you think—a show that can alter the ways you use and consider the fundamental communication devices of our time.
