Tony Award-nominee Hank Azaria stars as David Sarnoff, and Jimmi Simpson as Philo T. Farnsworth in Aaron Sorkin's new American play about the advent of television, THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, opening on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 with previews beginning on Monday, October 15, 2007.
THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION marks Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin's ("The West Wing") return to Broadway for the first time since his hit 1989 play A Few Good Men.
Hank Azaria received a Tony Award nomination for his last appearance on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Monty Python's Spamalot.
Des McAnuff, director of the Tony Award-winning smash Jersey Boys, won Tony Awards for direction of Big River and The Who's Tommy.
THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION will be produced on Broadway by Dodger Properties with Steven Spielberg, Dan Cap Productions, Fred Zollo, Latitude Link and the Pelican Group.
Additional casting will be announced shortly.
THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION centers around the bitter conflict that pitted Philo T. Farnsworth (Jimmi Simpson), a boy genius who invented television as a high school student in 1927, against David Sarnoff (Hank Azaria), the head of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA). The legal battle between Farnsworth and RCA would later become known as one of the great, tragic examples of legal and industrial force combining to crush a rightful patent owner. In a race that would change humanity forever, two men battle one another for honor, glory and a place in the history books.
THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION design team will be comprised of Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), David C. Woolard (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (Lighting Design), Walter Trarbach (Sound Design). The creative team also includes Andrew Lippa (original music) and Lisa Shriver (choreography).
THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION debuted at La Jolla Playhouse in a "Page To Stage" workshop production, running February 20, 2007 through March 25, 2007.
