Grace Gummer, Stephen Kunken, and Brian J. Smith are the latest additions to the Broadway cast of Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of David Auburn's The Columnist. Daniel Sullivan will direct the production, which will begin previews on April 4 at MTC's Broadway house, the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, with an opening date set for April 25.

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

As previously reported, John Lithgow will star as Alsop, with Margaret Colin as Alsop's wife Susan and Boyd Gaines as his brother, Stewart.

The creative team will include 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).
