On Stage: An Idol Musical, Sorkin's New Invention

The self-explanatory (although probably unnecessary) Idol: The Musical, a satirical comedy about a "cult-like club that meets daily in a garage that doubles as a shrine to Clay Aiken," opens off-Broadway next month. Apparently, it earned raves in Syracuse. Seriously.... Licking his wounds after the whole Studio 60 debacle, West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin trades the small screen for the stage when The Farnsworth Invention hits Broadway this fall, says Playbill.com. Previously seen at the La Jolla Playhouse, the drama — about the (glorious) invention of the TV set — marks Sorkin's return to the Great White Way after almost two decades. — Reporting by Raven Snook
