All the Way, starring Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, will transfer from Boston's American Repertory Theater to Broadway's Neil Simon Theatre early next year. The production is set to begin previews February 10, with an official opening on March 6. Bill Rauch, artistic director of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, directs.

Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan, the play deals with the first year of LBJ's presidency, following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In addition to Cranston, the cast will include Michael McKean as J. Edgar Hoover and Brandon J. Dirden as Martin Luther King Jr., both of whom starred in those roles in the A.R.T. production. Additional cast members will be announced in the coming months.

The production features set design by Christopher Acebo, costume design by Deborah M. Dryden, lighting design by Jane Cox, composition and sound design by Paul James Prendergast, and video projections by Shawn Sagady. The projection design consultant is Wendall K. Harrington.
