The Crazy Ones – A Steve Jobs Based Musical To Debut 15th March

Finally it seems that the movie industry is ready to stop milking Steve Jobs cash cow and now it’s the turn of Broadway. Get ready for Steve Jobs the musical.

Based on the founding of Apple will debut this month in New York City. Developed at the New York musical Festival the musical theater factory and the New York theater barn “The Crazy Ones” is build as a thrilling new original pop rock musical, that aims to depict Steve Jobs genius as well as his very powerful demons.

Here’s hoping that it will depict demons on the stage as well as monologue referencing him dealing with personal demons, because if their demons on stage I might go.

The crazy ones is set to debut on 15 March at Feinstein’s 54 below in Manhattan. If that sounds too light for you though there is a Steve Jobs opera in the works. That will debut in 2017. I would love it if Scott Forstall is producing one of those

Haunted Empire “fails to capture Apple, Steve, or anyone else in the company. “

Yukari Iwatani Kane throws a strop as Tim cook describes her book, Haunted, as missing the point about apple. What a surprise that a WSJ Journalist doesn’t understand Apple.

This nonsense belongs with some of the other books I’ve read about Apple. It fails to capture Apple, Steve, or anyone else in the company. Apple has over 85,000 employees that come to work each day to do their best work, to create the world’s best products, to put their mark in the universe and leave it better than they found it. This has been the heart of Apple from day one and will remain at the heart for decades to come. I am very confident about our future. We’ve always had many doubters in our history. 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 conclusions, so I understand the sentiment. I’m happy to speak with him or anyone at Apple in public or private. My hope in writing this book was to be thought-provoking and to start a conversation which I’m glad it has.”

Rene Ritchie: ‘This Is a Bad Book

This isn’t a great book I simply didn’t like. This is a bad book.
I was sent an advanced review copy a week ago and it was arduous to get through it.

Seth Weintraub, reviewing Haunted Empire:

The book concludes exactly how it has been prepared to conclude (sorry, no surprise ending).
