Pulitzer and Tony-winning playwright David Auburn, best known for penning Proof, captures the legendary career and complex personal life of Washington journalist Joseph Alsop in the fascinating drama The Columnist. Beloved and feared, Alsop was the most powerful political writer in the country for decades. He was also a closeted homosexual -- a fact the KGB held over his head for years. Full of contradictions, the conservative Republican and vocal supporter of the Vietnam war was also a friend and advisor to John F. Kennedy. This powerful show, which opened on Broadway in 2012, 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. American Blues Theater brings this production to Chicago's Stage 773.
