All The Way with Triple A

Winner of the 2014 Tony Award®, this suspenseful Texas-sized new play about one of the most powerful Texans, takes us from the earliest moments of Lyndon B. Johnson’s accidental presidency to his hard-won landslide election one year later. The resident acting companies of Dallas Theater Center and Houston’s Tony Award®-winning Alley Theatre join together to create this monumental play, which will be performed in both cities.  Robert Schenkkan’s masterful script paints a gripping portrayal of LBJ, civil rights hero, ruthless bully, and perhaps one of our greatest legislative presidents. With a title harkening back to the slogan for his 1964 campaign, All the Way is a searing and enthralling dramatization that explores political gridlock, strong-arm manipulation, and the morality of politics and power. Contains strong language and mature themes.

Dallas-based actor Adam “Ace” Anderson delivers one of the play’s most gripping monologues in the second act as Stokely Carmichael — the man who popularized the term “black power” — when he calls on America to “stand up.” The entire cast echo his call to arms, while standing amongst the Lincoln Memorial-esque columns of set designer Beowolf Borritt’s set.
