North Carolina Theatre’s Jan. 18-Feb.3 Pre-Broadway Tryout of “Nerds” Has a Lot of Growing Up to Do

“Nerds” has a book and lyrics by Jordan Allen-Dutton and Erik Weiner and music by Hal Goldberg. With the tagline, “Steve, Bill and the dawn of the digital revolution,” it hugely satirizes the meeting and the subsequent paths to glory of Microsoft founder Bill Gates (Stanley Bahorek) and his rival, Apple founder Steve Jobs (N.C.-native Darren Ritchie). A kernel of truth allows for some outlandish happenings. It’s pretty big; it’s very flashy; but in the end, it’s just okay.

Broadway veterans Stanley Bahorek and Darren Ritchie will co-star as Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.
