Disclaimer #2: Spoiler alert: This web site offers a scene-by-scene analysis of the play -v- the actual history. If you are planning to see the play, you might want to wait until after you've seen it to peruse the material here. If you've already seen the play, or you don't think you'll ever quite make it to New York, well...

c'mon in...

...or jump straight to the part in Act II where the wheels come off....

... or join our discussion forums and tell us what you think of the play and/or it's depiction of history.

The Farnsworth Invention is presented at the Music Box Theater on 45th Street, just a block from the Great White Way
