I'm writing to let you know that THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS has been released in version 2.0 under a royalty-free, open source license.
The New York Times called this new version "more powerful, funny, and engaging" than ever. It removes all the contested material and sticks with just the facts, ma'am, and we road tested it by performing it around the country for six months.
You can download it here.
AGONY/ECSTASY has been downloaded more than 100,000 times, and over the last seven months there have been more than 35 productions around the world, translated into six (!) languages. The show has been staged in Toronto, Madrid, Germany, Kurdistan, Edinburgh, Costa Rica, Phoenix, Zimbabwe, Chicago, Johannesburg, islands off the coast of Maine, and many, many more. There's even a translation happening in Beijing, and they are hoping to stage it in China in the near future.
This fall our new monologue, AMERICAN UTOPIAS, premieres across the country. It will capture the utopian impulse in American society by looking at two modern, unorthodox utopias: the fairytale mecca of Disney World, and the anarchic festival of Burning Man. The way these charged gathering places function and what they mean to us is then used as a way to talk about Zuccotti Park and the birth of the Occupy movement. This show has been years in the making, and we're tremendously excited to bring it to our audiences. It will be touring to major engagements in Chicago, Washington DC, Princeton, Duke, the University of Iowa, and points beyond.
Finally, if you are in New York City, hold the date October 22nd in your calendars. I'm not allowed to say more now, but we have a big announcement coming that we're excited about.
Be seeing you,
