The Columnist, John Lithgow
John Lithgow, who is nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in Manhattan Theatre Club's THE COLUMNIST, will be a guest on tonight's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" which airs late night at 12:35 AM on NBC.
THE COLUMNIST, by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan recently extended at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Tickets are now on sale through Sunday, July 1.
When it opened, critics called Auburn's play "powerful" (CBS News) and "gripping and compelling" (Newsday). John Lithgow's performance, for which he has received a 2012 Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Play, has been hailed as, "impossible to resist," (Wall Street Journal) and "superb" (Newsday), while Daniel Sullivan's direction was lauded as "superior" (The New Yorker), and the cast has been called "a first rate ensemble."
The limited engagement of THE COLUMNIST stars Tony and Emmy Award winner John Lithgow, Drama Desk Award nominee Margaret Colin, four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines, Tony Award nominee Stephen Kunken, Marc Bonan (Broadway debut), Grace Gummer ("Smash," Arcadia), and Brian J. Smith (MTC's Come Back, Little Sheba; "Stargate Universe").
