"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," explain press notes.
Invention design team is 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 (movement).
Invention debuted at La Jolla Playhouse in a "Page To Stage" workshop
production, running February 20, 2007 through March 25, 2007.
