  • Play Description
    It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy?

    The answer comes to compelling life in The Farnsworth Invention, the new play from Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Des McAnuff. Tony nominee Hank Azaria and newcomer Jimmi Simpson head the cast of this electrifying new drama. Book your tickets today—and stay tuned.
