The Great Society
Epic as it was, the Tony-winning drama All the Way didn’t tell the whole story of the Lyndon Baines Johnson presidency. Now a sequel, The Great Society, takes up the saga, beginning with LBJ’s triumph in the 1964 presidential race and continuing through the victories (the 1965 Voting Rights Act) and the tragedies (the Vietnam war, and assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.) of his first and last full term. Emmy and Olivier Award winner Brian Cox (Succession) takes on the role of LBJ, heading a cast of 17 that also includes Grantham Coleman (Much Ado About Nothing at The Public) as King, Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) as RFK, and Tony nominee Richard Thomas (The Little Foxes) as Hubert Humphrey. The Lincoln Center Theater co-production is directed by Bill Rauch (All the Way).
