Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere production of THE COLUMNIST by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan currently in previews at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street), has extended due to popular demand. The production will open on Wednesday, April 25 and tickets are now on sale through Sunday, June 24.
