Three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) will star in All the Way, a historical drama about President Lyndon Jonhson’s struggle to pass civil rights legislation. The play, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Schenkkan (The Kentucky Cycle), was previously produced at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Mass.  Broadway previews begin at the Neil Simon Theatre on Feb. 10, 2014 in advance of a March 6 opening.

Cranston will play President Johnson with Michael McKean (The Homecoming, A Mighty Wind) as J. Edgar Hoover and Brandon J. Dirden (The Piano Lesson) as Martin Luther King, Jr. All three will be repeating the roles they played in the ART production. The play will be directed by Bill Rauch, artistic director of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Other hit ARTproductions to transfer to Broadway include Once, Pippin, and The Glass Menagerie.
