Joseph Alsop, America’s most powerful political commentator, is the subject of The Columnist, a new play by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award–winning author of Proof. Dominating Washington’s political scene in the years between World War II and the Vietnam War, Joe is both feared and admired. But as America enters the turbulent 60s, his unyielding political views and dark personal secrets threaten to destroy his influence. Opened on Broadway in 2012 with John Lithgow. Bay Area premiere.
