All The WayReturn

Playwright Robert Schenkkan Producer Palo Alto Players  [Website] Description BAY AREA PREMIERE! 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. In the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright’s vivid, 2014 Tony Award-winning 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. As we enter our own midterm elections and explore the political battles waged before us, ALL THE WAY reflects the power of one person and one vote to transform our country.
