ALL THE WAY by Robert Schenkkan
Loyola University, Marquette Theatre
Directed by Aimée Hayes
It’s not personal – it’s just politics.
November, 1963: an assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act – a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America – even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right and the recognition he so desperately wants. Together with Martin Luther King Jr. and an incredible cast of historical figures, they changed America – and the world.
“Historically accurate and mesmerizing. . .
Dominique McClellan is riveting . . .
Jason Kirkpatrick is nothing short of magnificent.”
– Alan Smason, WYES
