If two musicals about Steve Jobs seems like one or two too many you’ve got one less with which to contend, Variety reports that “Nerds” a musical about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates is no longer headed to Broadway. If a Steve Jobs musical was going to make it it feels like it should’ve been this one.

I would love it if Scott Forstall is producing one of those Source : broadwayworld.com

They only make us stronger. Update 3/18 2:22 PT: Yukari Kane has given a statement to Re/code on Cook’s condemnation of her book. “For Tim Cook to have such strong feelings about the book, it must have touched a nerve,” Kane said. “Even I was surprised by my…
