The announcement we’ve all be waiting for:
Link: Aaron Sorkin’s Farnsworth Invention to Open on Broadway in November.
"The West Wing" creator/writer Aaron Sorkin will make his return to Broadway this fall with his first play in almost two decades, The Farnsworth Invention, Playbill.com has learned.
A casting notice lists Dodger Theatricals as the producer of the forthcoming production, to be directed by Des McAnuff.
The posting lists Oct. 15 as the tentative date of the first preview performance with a Nov. 18 opening.
The Farnsworth Invention concerns the battle for the patent for the invention of the television set. The race pitted a young genius, Philo T. Farnsworth, who came up with the idea as a high school student, against David Sarnoff, the head of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA).
So, first the play… then the movie, then the play based on the movie…
