The new LBJ play, a sequel to ALL THE WAY, began previews yesterday. Anyone here see it?

I'm going in a few weeks.  Can't say I'm enthusiastic.  Brian Cox as LBJ?

Saw All The Way and really enjoyed it

We now both retired and can no longer can afford the prices plus we both have medical issues. All good things must end. We had a good run.

All The Way was so much better. The director took a Shakespearean approach where supporting characters appeared from a chorus. It almost made me wonder how the LBJ story would work as an opera. The lead kept it going although his accent was a over the place. Very little transpired between actors which was it's biggest miss. Some supporting actors seemed inexperienced.

Sorry to hear about the health issues- having multiple investigations myself. Hang in there Roxy ( and Mrs).

Re retirement & tkt $$ -it's still possible to do theatre just more work ( ie the coupons on Broadway Box & Playbill) but if it's too debilitating  to get into the city- well Broadway HD is available.

G*d Bless.
