Aaron Sorkin got the gang back together again for one more show—or, rather, a stage performance of a show they did 18 years ago. The special will be a theatrical experience, one that was filmed earlier this month at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles under coronavirus guidelines. The special is a staged performance of the Season 3 West Wing episode “Hartsfield’s Landing.” So even if you’ve seen that episode a million ties, you’ve never seen it quite like this.
