Farnsworth Finally Gets Its Broadway Opening

The Farnsworth Invention opens on Broadway tonight at the Music Box Theatre. The Aaron Sorkin drama was originally scheduled to have its official opening on November 14, but was delayed due to the Broadway stagehands strike which began on the 10th. Farnsworth stars Hank Azaria and Jimmi Simpson as two men battling for the patent on that extraordinary invention known as the television.
