Alley Theatre presents All The Way
Alley Theatre will present the Tony Award-winning new play, All The Way, a unique co-production with Dallas Theater Center. Directed by DTC Artistic Director Kevin Moriarty, All The Way brings company members from two of the largest Texas resident theaters to collaborate and perform on stage, beginning with the Houston premiere in the Alley’s newly renovated Hubbard Theatre.
All The Way, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Texas native Robert Schenkkan, features LBJ’s presidency and creates a present moment piece of theater with immediacy and drive. Two dozen actors portray the roles of some of the most dynamic political figures of the century, including the 36th President of the United States himself, Lyndon Baines Johnson.
The production begins in 1963. An assassin’s bullet catapults LBJ into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, the charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into Civil Rights legislation, throwing the country into turmoil.
