Staged Reading of The Columnist by David Auburn, August 25 6:30 PM

Left of Left Center presents its first promotional dramatic reading, The Columnist by David Auburn. Auburn is perhaps best known as the writer of Proof, a Pulitzer and Tony winner. The Columnist is his first full-length play in 12 years.

Thursday, August 25 at 6:30 PM, at Barnes & Noble East Towne Mall.

The play chronicles the life, accomplishments, and controversies of famed newspaper columnist Joe Alsop, and premiered in New York in 2012 with John Lithgow in the title role. The New York Times calls it a “scrupulously assembled historical drama”, telling the tale of those who “spoke to power and even whispered in its ear.”

This presentation is directed by long-time LOLC collaborator Francisco Torres, and features the talents of Ned O’Reilly, Jason Compton, Sara Beth Hahner, Greg Hudson, Kierstyn Torres, Emily Morrison-Weeks, and Tom Kastle.

One night only. No charge for admission, all are welcome and invited to attend.
