The Columnist

by David Auburn
January 30 thru April 14
In the Keating Theatre

Overview
By the 1960s, Joseph Alsop was the most powerful political writer in America. He sat at the center of Washington life: loved, feared, and courted in equal measure by the people whose careers he determined. Based on the true events of his life, this drama explores the turmoil of the ‘60s, the conflict in Vietnam, and the profound personal cost of Joe’s intense political involvement.

FST is using the Hearing Loop System

This is the official sign designating a venue that has a Loop System. Note the capital white  “T” in the lower right corner. This designates a system that sends the sound directly to a T-Coil, a tiny wireless receiver that the hearing aid must have to receive the sound.

The Hearing Loop System is the only system that sends clear, superior sound from a microphone directly into a hearing aid or cochlear implant without interference.
