About ALL THE WAY by Robert Schenkkan

It’s not personal – it’s just politics.

November, 1963.  An assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act – a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America – even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right and the recognition he so desperately wants. Together with Martin Luther King Jr. and an incredible cast of historical figures, they changed America and the world.

Performances will run at Loyola University; rehearsals start April 2; performances May 16 – June 3. Community performers will receive a travel stipend; child care and refreshments will be provided at rehearsals.
