Closed June 29, 2014

Riding the crest of his fame from "Breaking Bad," Mr. Cranston strides onto the Broadway stage with an admirable confidence, meeting the challenge of animating Mr. Schenkkan's sprawling civics lesson as if he's thoroughly at home.

Charles Isherwood, New York Times

Why See All The Way?

Winner of the 2014 Tony for Best Play

All The Way is a politically charged play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan about Lyndon B. Johnson's controversial first year as President in the Oval Office. Tempers fly as L.B.J. fights to pass the monumental Civil Rights Act of 1964 and, at the same time, tries to secure his full term as President.

All The Way earned Bryan Cranston - who makes his Broadway debut - a 'Leading Actor' Tony Award for his performance, with the play winning the coveted award for Best Play. The production is one of the rare gems that scooped up wins in both categories it was nominated for.

The production ran in 2013 at Boston's American Repertory Theater where it enjoyed a sell-out run before heading to New York City. This Broadway production once again stars multiple Emmy Award-winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) in the lead role of L.B.J. - one he has been nominated for a 2014 Tony Award for. All The Way is directed by Bill Rauch and has also been nominated for a 2014 Tony Award for Best Play.
