Wilson Bethel, David Krumholtz and JoBeth Williams to Star in THE COLUMNIST for L.A. Theatre Works, 11/14-17
Tara Lynne Barr, Wilson Bethel, John Getz, David Krumholtz, John Vickery and JoBeth Williams star in the West Coast premiere of the spellbinding new drama THE COLUMNIST by Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn (Proof), who also directs.
Joseph Alsop's scathing newspaper columns galvanized millions of Americans and influenced the Washington powerbrokers that ran America. While he exposed McCarthyism, extolled Kennedy's Camelot and advocated an escalation of the war in Vietnam, he could never reveal his life as a closeted gay man.
