Earlier this year, Aaron Sorkin's new play The Farnsworth Invention played to sold-out crowds at the Left Coast's La Jolla Playhouse. I even attempted to find tickets for myself, but had to settle for the Altar Boyz during my San Diego visit (don't worry, Altar Boyz fans, I enjoyed the show).
Perhaps now I'll have my chance to catch Sorkin's work as it's finally been confirmed for Broadway. According to the casting notice, previews are to begin October 15, with opening night scheduled for November 18.
The Des McAnuff-helmed play is Sorkin's theatrical dramatization of the race to develop that little technological breakthrough you may have heard of called television. No word yet on whether Steven Spielberg will be involved as previously reported.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
