About The Columnist - On Broadway

Show Info


For decades, Joseph Alsop was the most powerful journalist in the country. He was beloved, feared and courted in equal measure by the Washington political world. But as the ‘60s approached and American culture entered a time of dizzying change, the intense political drama Joe was embroiled in became deeply personal as well. Tony® and Emmy® Award winner John Lithgow takes on the role of Joseph Alsop in The Columnist. David Auburn, whose Pulitzer- and Tony-winning Proof dazzled audiences and critics alike, returns to MTC with this fascinating new play directed by his Proof collaborator, Tony winner Daniel Sullivan.

With Margaret Colin, Boyd Gaines, and John Lithgow

April 4 - June 3, 2012
