By Aaron Sorkin, Directed by Alex Levy

It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy? The answer comes to compelling life in the regional premiere of this “firecracker of a play” (Chicago Sun-Times) by Aaron Sorkin, creator of the West Wing, The Newsroom, and The Social Network. $15-33
