This sequel to Robert Schenkkan's Tony-winning play All the Way, captures Lyndon B. Johnson's passionate and aggressive attempts to build a great society for all. From his triumphant landslide election to the agonizing decision not to run for re-election just three years later. Those few short years would define an era: the rise of the Civil Rights Movement, the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, the violence and dissent of the Vietnam War and the creation of some of the greatest social programs America has ever known. All with one man at the center of it: LBJ.

Brian Cox stars as President Lyndon Baines Johnson, Marc Kudisch as Richard J. Daley, Richard Thomas as Hubert Humphrey, Grantham Coleman as Martin Luther King Jr., Bryce Pinkham as Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Gordon Clapp as J. Edgar Hoover and Frank Wood as Senator Everett Dirksen.

Bill Rauch will direct the production.
