About this show

From Aaron Sorkin, the creator of A Few Good Men and The West Wing comes this fascinating new play direct from Broadway. It's the story of two ambitious visionaries -- Philo T. Farnsworth, an Idaho farmboy, and David Sarnoff, head of RCA -- battling each other for the rights to one of the greatest inventions of all time: the television. Through corporate espionage, family tragedy, financial disaster and the thrill of discovery, these two larger-than-life men compete for fame and credit and become part of a decision that would change America, and eventually the world.
