The intense play by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan, which spans from right after Kennedy’s assassination through the 1964 election, centers on Johnson’s struggle to get the civil rights bill passed while also winning the Democratic Party nomination and getting elected president on his own merit. Also starring are Brandon J. Dirden as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Michael McKean as J. Edgar Hoover.

All the Way opens tonight at the Neil Simon Theatre at 250 W 52nd St. for a limited engagement.
