Original Musical 'The Crazy Ones' Will Depict Steve Jobs' 'Powerful Demons'

Steve JobsA new musical centering around the founding of Apple Computers by Steve Jobs is debuting this month in New York. Developed at the New York Musical Festival, the Musical Theatre Factory, and the New York Theatre Barn, "The Crazy Ones" is billed as "a thrilling new original pop-rock musical" that aims to depict Jobs' genius as well as his "very powerful demons."
In 1982, Steve Jobs was in control. His company, Apple Computer, was on top of the world: his products were changing the work and home life of hundreds of thousands of users every day, and he was exorbitantly, extravagantly rich. But something sinister was brewing underneath the surface - both at Apple, and in Steve's own mind. The Crazy Ones tells the story of the man behind the genius and how he strove to leave behind a legacy, despite some very powerful demons.
The music and lyrics were written by award-winning composer Zack Zadek with a book by Alexander Pototsky, who've been working together on the idea for The Crazy Ones for over two years. Their creation will finally see its debut on March 15 at Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York City. Those interested in attending can check out ticket pricing here.

This isn't the first time Steve Jobs' life has been the subject of dramatization outside of film -- last year it was announced that an opera depicting the Apple co-founder's life will debut in 2017.

"Powerful Demons" is just a different way of saying that he was an A55HOLE.

The big opening number: "Hello, I am Macintosh."


Hello, it's Steve
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet
To go over beats
They say that tim's supposed to feel ya
But he's still selling 8gig phones dah

Hello, can you hear me
I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet
There's such a difference between Tim and Me
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your Mac
But it don't matter it clearly doesn't tear Jony apart

Next time someone says "you are being a p***k" I'M going to say "No, I'm just dealing with Powerful Demons."

Actually maybe I'll start a death metal band and call it Powerful Demons.

All I can say is that the show I saw was substantially different than all the others - it used the fact that it had music to give insight on Steve in a way that the others never seemed to...

He was an impressive person no doubt, but I mean two lack luster movies, a biography that wasn't an all time best seller, and now this? No Jobs production seems to be breaking any sales/revenue records so why continue with it?

A thrilling musical lampoon at a supper club. OK.

Found some clips (get a load of the lyrics):

The "crazy ones" are the ones paying to listen to this crap while eating a meal.
