All the Way
by Robert Schenkkan
directed by Bill Rauch
in partnership with Oregon Shakespeare Festival
Tony Award winner for Best Play. Accidental president. Brilliant politician. Flawed man. It’s 1963 and 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. But in faraway Vietnam, a troublesome conflict looms. The Huffington Post calls Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan’s dramatization of LBJ’s first year in office “a vivid profile of one of the most complicated men to occupy the presidency.”
- Run time is approximately two hours and 45 minutes including one intermission.
All the Way is complemented by its companion piece, the Seattle Rep-commissioned The Great Society, depicting LBJ’s tumultuous second term in office. Tickets on sale now.
