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.
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

Whilst Apple execs may not have liked the movie Steve Jobs they do like making money selling movies. The Danny Boyle biopic of Steve Jobs is now available to rent or buy on the iTunes store.
Here was I thinking what was the point of Tim Cook coming out as in this day and age is it such a big thing. Shows how wrong I was and it’s a big issue, especially in Russia.
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.”[asa]0007467125[/asa]
Reviews on Haunted Empire
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).
The wall street journal as publishing extracts from “Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs” that just happens to be curated from an ex WSJ reporter Yukari Kane. Haunted Empire is to be taken with a pinch of salt given WSJ’s manipulation of stocks and views to suite their agenda.
Today is Steve Jobs’s birthday and if he was still with us he’d be 59. Steve was born on February 25th, 1955.
About 30 years ago, a time-capsule was buried along with Steve Jobs first mouse that was made for Apple Lisa. The time-capsule had been dug up and documented by National Geography. CNet uploaded the clip to show the first impression.
An official trailer for jOBS the movie is out now on Yahoo. Well worth a watch. Will the movie be called ‘jOBS’ or Steve Jobs I wonder? Check out the full theatrical trailer over at yahoo.
If you don’t smile after reading this story then there is something seriously wrong with you. http://davidgelphman.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/2-letters-from-steve/
Friday 25th January marked the premier screening for the biopic “jOBS’ featuring moments before the now deceased Steve Jobs Keynotes. Debuting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival it’s already felt the wrath of Wozniack who said “it’s totally wrong” and now other reviews are coming in.
Steve Wozniak has blasted the jOBS biopic after seeing the sneak peek video released earlier this week. Wozniak has already dismissed the footage as “not close” to real-life events.
There isn’t that much in the way of details about “jOBS” the film about the late Apple founder, Steve Jobs but its been announced that first airings will show at the Sundance Festival in April. Oh and did we mention that a favorite of ours, James Woods, has also been cast
Aaron Sorkin the acclaimed screenwriter finally let some details slip today at The Hero Summit about jOBS, The Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS. Presented in an act fashion, jOBS will comprise of 3, 30 minute segments focussing on back stage moments before some of the most iconic keynote moments.
After finally getting confirmation that my iPhone 5 is on it’s way and following the tracking link, the Apple store has a fitting tribute to Steve Jobs, 1 year on. Could you name any other company rivalling Apple for size that would simply stop taking sales in memorandum?
