According to the New York Times, producer Jeffrey Richards has announced plans to move the hit play All the Way to Broadway as early as this winter. All the Way, which stars Emmy winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as Lyndon B. Johnson and Michael McKean (Gore Vidal's The Best Man) as J. Edgar Hoover, is currently running at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

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. According to Richards, Cranston is the only actor from the current production to be named thus far for the Broadway production.

All the Way, which has been well-received by critics and audiences, is scheduled to end its run at A.R.T. on Saturday, October 12.
