About

Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) was an accidental president who, in ALL THE WAY, goes behind the doors of the Oval Office and examines the first year of LBJ’s presidency and his fight to pass a landmark civil rights bill. Looking forward to the forthcoming presidential election, the charismatic yet conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Bill, which is both desired and fiercely contested. Robert Schenkkan’s Tony Award-winning play travels from November 1963 to November 1964, in which LBJ (the former vice president) was thrust into power following Kennedy’s assassination, struggling to hold onto the White House in an election that forced him to make concessions. At this pivotal time in American history, he was determined to end racial injustice in America and successfully ran for re-election after pushing through the controversial Civil Rights Act. ALL THE WAY documents LBJ’s relationship with Martin Luther King and his influential political peers. It offers an intricate and intimate portrayal of how LBJ bent Congress to his own will. He made his own stamp on presidential history.
