Scott Forstall, “the former iOS chief has announced via his Twitter account an unrelated project: a Broadway musical,” Zac Hall reports for 9to5Mac.
This follows the news yesterday via a leaked email from the Sony Pictures hack that indicated Snapchat set aside 0.11% of its stock for former Apple head of iOS Scott Forstall to be an advisor.
On October 29, 2012, Apple announced in a press release that Scott Forstall would be leaving Apple (in 2013) in the wake of the troubled Apple Maps launch.
I'm thrilled to be co-producing the Broadway musical Fun Home http://t.co/PqrKKZGcxY opening this Sunday. Bravo to the phenomenal team!
