On March 26, TheaterMania reported that Mike Daisey has posted on his blog an apology to audiences, fellow theater artists, journalists, and human rights advocates for his misrepresentations of the truth within his solo performance piece, "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs."

Daisey recently came under fire after Ira Glass and This American Life broadcast a retraction in regards to Daisey's appearance on the popular radio show, which followed upon the discovery that Daisey had lied about certain aspects of the story. The show is set for a return engagement at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company from July 17 - August 5.

Daisey's online apology reads in part:

"I would like to apologize to my audiences. And I would like to apologize to my colleagues in the theater, especially those who work in non-fiction and documentary fields. What you do is essential to our civic discourse. If I have made your path more difficult, or the truth of your work harder for audiences to discern, I am sorry."
