ALL THE WAY Starring BREAKING BAD's Bryan Cranston Headed to Broadway in January of 2014?
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, the A.R.T.'s sold-out production of All the Way, written by Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Robert Schenkkan and directed by Bill Rauch, has been eying a transfer to Broadway, and it will arrive in January, according to an Equity casting notice. Rehearsals are set to begin in December, with an open-ended run beginning in January 2014.
The Harvard production starred Bryan Cranston (AMC's "Breaking Bad") as Lyndon Baines Johnson, and cloncluded its run on October 12 in Cambridge. The roles of Johnson, King, and Hoover have already been cast- they were played by Cranston, Brandon J. Dirden (The Piano Lesson off-Broadway, Enron on Broadway), and Michael McKean (Mighty Wind, This is Spinal Tap) respectively.
It's 1963. An assassin's bullet catapults Lyndon B. Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the Civil Rights Act, a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America. In the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright's vivid dramatization of LBJ's first year in office, means versus ends plays out on the precipice of modern America. This exploration of the morality of power premiered at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2012.
Set design is by Christopher Acebo, costume design by Deborah M. Dryden, lighting design by Jane Cox, original music and sound design by Paul James Pendergast, and video projections by Shawn Sagady. Thedramaturg is Tom Bryant.
