From last Friday, another item from our friends at the New York Post:
Trailing the pack is Aaron Sorkin’s "The Farnsworth Invention," about the battle between Philo Farnsworth, who invented television, and David Sarnoff, who stole the idea. The reviews for the show were mixed, and the box office is taking in less than $50,000 a day, sources say.
Cast members have been told that unless business picks up, the patent will soon expire on "The Farnsworth Invention."
If that’s true, then it’s a real shame. Most of the performers associated with this production have been with this thing for the better part of a year. They, at least, deserved better.
