About The Columnist

From the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning author of Proof (David Auburn), comes a drama about power, the press, sex, and betrayal. At the height of the Cold War, Joe Alsop is the nation’s most influential journalist—beloved, feared, and courted by the Washington world. But as the 60s dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political dramas Joe is embroiled in become deeply personal as well.
