John Lithgow and David Auburn Rescue Columnist Joseph Alsop From Obscurity in New Broadway Play

Tony Award winner John Lithgow stars as Joseph Alsop — the powerful American newspaper columnist who wrote from the 1930s to the 1970s, but is almost completely forgotten today — in Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn's new Broadway drama The Columnist. Auburn, Lithgow and co-stars Margaret Colin, Boyd Gaines, Stephen Kunken and Brian J. Smith talk about the influence Alsop had in his prime, and the conflicting relationships that make up the play. Performances begin April 4 at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. For more information, click here.
