Mike Daisey Says the Show Must Go On

Monologist Mike Daisey will open a new performance at Berkeley Repertory Theatre this Sunday, to coincide with his current production, The Last Cargo Cult. The new play hones in on the life and work of Apple CEO Steve Jobs , who just announced a medical leave of absence this week, one year after undergoing a liver transplant for pancreatic cancer. Daisey expressed sympathy for Jobs in a blog post published yesterday, but insists that the show must go on. In characteristically pungent prose, he promised a show that will rival Cargo Cult in scope and shrewdness. He’ll use Jobs as a launchpad not only to discuss vicissitudes in the tech industry, but also to show its global impact — specifically in the factories of Southern China, which he investigated in the process of researching this play.
