Margaret Colin and Boyd Gaines Join John Lithgow in MTC’s ‘The Columnist’

Margaret Colin (Gossip Girl, MTC’s Defiance, Arcadia) and four time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines (Gypsy, Contact) will join Tony and Emmy Award winner John Lithgow in the cast of the world premiere of The Columnist.

Written by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, the show follows columnist Joseph Alsop (Lithgow). Joe is beloved, feared and courted in equal measure by the Washington political world at whose center he sits. But as the ’60s dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political drama Joe is embroiled in becomes deeply personal as well.

Colin will play Susan Alsop, his wife, while Gaines will play Stewart Alsop, his brother.

THE COLUMNIST will begin performances Wednesday, April 4 and open Wednesday, April 25 at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

Tickets for THE COLUMNIST are available by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200, online by visiting www.Telecharge.com, or by visiting the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre Box Office (261 West 47th Street). Ticket prices are $57 – $116.
