Who came first?
NEW YORK- The heirs to the Vaudeville and movie tandem of comics Abbott and Costello sued the producers of a Broadway play over the pair's famous "Who's on first" routine.
In the play "Hand to God," a sock puppet performs part of the skit. The heirs allege copyright infringement. The play is up for five Tony Awards on Sunday and the lead producer calls the suit "nothing more than a stunt" on the eve of the awards.
The heirs claim the routine was used so the play could be promoted as a comedy and it "copied the very heart" of "Who's on First."
