John Heard, the actor who will play Washington Post editor Ben Bradley has appeared in several hit movies, among them the "Home Alone" series and "Big", and in TV's "The Sopranos", "Prison Break" and "CSI: Miami".
The Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord is offering a 10 percent discount to NHBA members purchasing tickets for the Feb. 6 show, “Top Secret: The Battle for the Pentagon Papers.” Before the performance, there will be a panel discussion – including US District Court Chief Judge Steven McAuliffe – on the conflicts between the government and the press on national security.
