Now Showing: The Farnsworth Invention
It's 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called "television." Separated by 2,000 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"
and "The Social Network
." Production dates are Feb. 28-March 2 and March 6-8, 2014, with a preview performance on Feb. 25. Learn more
