Winner of the 2014 Tony Award®, this suspenseful Texas-sized new play about one of the most powerful Texans, takes us from the earliest moments of Lyndon B. Johnson's accidental presidency to his hard-won landslide election one year later. The resident acting companies of Dallas Theater Center and Houston's Tony Award®-winning Alley Theatre join together to create this monumental play, which will be performed in both cities.

With a title harkening back to the slogan for his 1964 campaign, All the Way is a searing and enthralling dramatization that explores political gridlock, strong-arm manipulation, and the morality of politics and power. Contains strong language and mature themes.
