Manhattan Theatre Club has announced a second extension of its world premiere of David Auburn's The Columnist. Daniel Sullivan directs the production at MTC's Broadway house, the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, which will now run through July 1.

The play centers on the syndicated newspaper columnist Joseph Alsop, and his place in the Washington political world.

Tony and Emmy Award winner John Lithgow -- who has received a 2012 Tony nomination for his work in this production -- stars as Joseph Alsop, with the cast also featuring Margaret Colin, Boyd Gaines, Stephen Kunken, Marc Bonan, Grace Gummer, and Brian J. Smith.

The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Jess Goldstein (costume design), Kenneth Posner (lighting design), John Gromada (original music, sound design), Rocco DiSanti (projection design), and Charles LaPointe (hair & wig design).
