All the Way, a “jaw-dropping political drama” (Variety), vividly portrays the groundbreaking steps taken by ambitious figures of the 1960s to pass the Civil Rights Act. Set in the pivotal year after JFK’s assassination, President Lyndon Baines Johnson hurls himself at the cause fronted by Martin Luther King, Jr., determined to rebuild the country into The Great Society that promised equality for all. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (The 12The Kentucky Cycle), All the Way bowled over Broadway last year garnering the 2014 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics’ Circle Awards for Best Play.
