Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan's new political drama All The Way, which stars Emmy Award-winning "Breaking Bad" actor Bryan Cranston as U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, officially opens on Broadway March 6 at the Neil Simon Theatre.
Here's how it's billed: "1963. An assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, the charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into Civil Rights legislation, throwing the country into turmoil. Alternately bullying and beguiling, he enacts major social programs, faces down opponents and wins the 1964 election in a landslide. But in faraway Vietnam, a troublesome conflict looms. In the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright’s vivid dramatization of LBJ’s first year in office, means versus ends plays out on a broad stage canvas as politicians and civil rights leaders plot strategy and wage war."
Set design is by Christopher Acebo, with costume design by Deborah M. Dryden, lighting design by Jane Cox, original music and sound design by Paul James Prendergast and video projections by Shawn Sagady.
