Proof Author Brings to Life Legendary Journalist Joseph Alsop
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Auburn (Proof) captures the legendary career and fraught personal life of Washington journalist Joseph Alsop in the fascinating drama The Columnist. Beloved and feared, Alsop was for decades the most powerful political columnist in the country. He was also a closeted homosexual -- a fact with which the KGB attempted to blackmail him for decades. Full of contradictions, the conservative Republican and vocal supporter of the Vietnam war was also a friend and advisor to John F. Kennedy. The Columnist is a portrait of this iconic figure as his professional and personal dramas collide, set against one of the most turbulent times in American history.
