THE COLUMNIST - THE BROADWAY LEAGUE: JOHN LITHGOW VIDEO INTERVIEW
The 2012 Tony Award® nominations were announced on Tuesday, May 1st. The next day, Tony Nominee John Lithgow sat down with The Broadway League to discuss "The Columnist".
The 2012 Tony Award® ceremonies airs live on CBS on Sunday, June 10, 2012 at 8/7C.
For decades, Joseph Alsop was the most powerful journalist in the country. 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. David Auburn, whose Pulitzer- and Tony-winning Proof dazzled audiences and critics alike, returns to MTC (Manhattan Theatre Club) with this fascinating new play directed by his Proof collaborator, Tony winner Daniel Sullivan.
Cast includes John Lithgow, Margaret Colin, Stephen Kunken, Marc Bonan, Grace Gummer and Stargate Universe's Brian J. Smith.
The play's run has now been extended to run through July 1, 2012.
