John Lithgow stars in David Auburn's highly charged political drama.
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.
Joseph Alsop, a real-life, much-feared (and powerful) Washington columnist, becomes embroiled in a highly charged political drama that is also deeply personal.
David Auburn's (Proof) latest drama portrays the dilemma faced by powerful Washington columnist Joseph Alsop, who publicly hosts the Kennedy Camelot circle while keeping hidden deep parts of himself.
