A one-man musical telling the story of the life of Steve Jobs. A divisive character, deemed a genius by some and hated by others. With a cultish following, in the eyes of his fans he could do no wrong whilst in private he could exhibit toxic traits. Notorious amongst colleagues for his fiery temper which would be shown to them in his pursuit of perfection. Songs are inspired by his adoption, his use of LSD, the denial of his first daughter and, of course, Apple. Perhaps the greatest business start-up story.

Another outstanding performance from this talented young actor who seems to reinvent himself with every new show. A very engaging and interesting telling (singing) the life of Steve Jobs. Clever theatre and writing and believable performance. 5* show, not to be missed.

Loved it. Whoever would think the chronological biography of the Apple corp would have so much heart. So simple. So precise. So human. So sad, and so joyous. An incredible and honest performance. A show that helps us thinks different. Bloody Ace.

A very three dimensional portrayal of Steve Jobs with a great actor and an impressive set for a small Fringe show - I was fascinated by the screens and their content. Wonderful music, and the song "I'm Back" is an absolute earworm!

A solo musical of the life of Steve Jobs. Somewhat ironically one of the Mac computers running as the set had broken for our performance (they have a spare coming for the next show). It didn't take away too much though - it was still a good musical, informative and well performed.

They tell feasibly the greatest business start-up story of all time, with fidelity, wit, and in a musical!
