Those of you hoping to get your Aaron Sorkin fix on Broadway may have to go back to reading Sports Night recaps -- his play about the (alleged?) creator of television, Philo Farnsworth, "has shuttered for now" due to the Broadway strike.
Frazier Moore's AP story makes much of Farnsworth's persistently bad luck -- didn't get credit for his invention; died penniless -- and how the strike's effect on the show is yet another iteration of same. But if fickle fortune is punishing anyone, I suspect it's Sorkin himself, for sins of hubris related to the sublimely frustrating and obnoxious Studio 60.
