Columnists are kings in midcentury America and Joseph Alsop (John Lithgow) wears the crown. 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.

This season, desire is taking on a whole new rhythm as the greatest play from America's most celebrated playwright sizzles onto the stage at The Broadhurst Theatre.
From the producers of the trailblazing 2008 Broadway production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, comes a hot new take on Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Leading the cast is 2-time Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, in his Broadway debut as Stanley Kowalski, Nicole Ari Parker ("Soul Food") as Blanche DuBois, Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent) as Stella Kowalski and Wood Harris ("The Wire") as Mitch. Directed by Emily Mann (Artistic Director of Princeton's esteemed McCarter Theatre) and featuring an original score by 5-time Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard, this scintillating Streetcar brings a whole new rhythm to Williams's enduring portrait of sex, class and secrets in one of America's most fascinating and diverse cities.
