Nashville R  epertory Theatre's production of The Columnist

the Columnist

David Auburn’s The Columnist…born from Nashville Rep's Ingram New Works Project…paints a portrait of legendary and controversial Joseph Alsop and of a rapidly changing America. For decades, Joseph Alsop was the most powerful journalist in the country: beloved, feared, and courted in equal measure by the Washington social world at whose center he sat. As the country and the world of journalism moved into a time of dizzying changes and drastic shifts, the intense political drama Alsop was embroiled in became deeply personal as well.

Both intense and moving, David Auburn delivers intelligence and insight in one of the most gripping new plays to hit the American stage.
