"The Columnist"

Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Auburn discusses “The Columnist,” along with its stars John Lithgow and Grace Gummer. It follows Joseph Alsop, a beloved and feared columnist who sits at the center of the Washington political world. As 1960s dawn and shake up America, the intense political drama Joe is embroiled in becomes deeply personal as well. “The Columnist” is playing at the MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theater through July 1.
