Daisey Gets Standing O at Last NY Show

Embattled playwright Mike Daisey, whose story on working conditions at Apple’s Foxconn factory in China was retracted by the radio program This American Life Friday, gave the final New York performance of his show The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs Sunday. Despite his credibility being questioned over using hearsay and anecdotes from people he didn’t actually meet, the audience still gave him a standing ovation. Before the show, Daisey told his audience that he had revised the script to make it more accurate. His show is scheduled to move to Washington next.

Correction: On Saturday, The Daily Beast's newsletter incorrectly identified This American Life as an NPR program. The show is produced by public radio station WBEZ in Chicago and distributed by Public Radio International.
