Consulate General of the United States Hyderabad, India - Mike Daisey -The Agony and The Ecstasy of Steve Jobs:

Just as the crowds at the Indian School of Business auditorium were getting restless, a large beefy man made his appearance on stage. As the blue back lights dimmed and the bright lights lit up his face, Mike Daisey, the New York-based monologue artist settled himself at the table and began telling of Steve Jobs’ obsessions and ruthlessness.

The audience, students, IT professionals and theater enthusiasts, listened with rapt attention. The U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad sponsored Mr. Daisey’s two-day visit to Hyderabad, August 16 and 17. In addition to a performance at Indian School of Business, Mr. Daisey led a two-hour workshop for young artists from the theater group Samhaara.
