Summary Influential Washington columnist Joseph Alsop finds that his career in the public eye conflicts with the secrets of his personal life in this drama based on a real-life figure.
Age Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation John Lithgow is excellent as usual, here taking on the meaty role of powerful and closeted columnist Joe Alsop. The play itself, written by David Auburn (Proof), is a bit dull, though. The series of vignettes show us Alsop at the height of his powers, basking in the glow of the Kennedys' Camelot, and then his gradual decline during the Johnson administration; all the while letting us peer into his complicated personal life. But none of this is terribly gripping, and, at the end of the day, this plodding biographical tale seems more suited to the page than the stage.
