The Great Society

THE GREAT SOCIETY is the second of the two LBJ plays and chronicles his second term, from November, 1964 to March, 1968 when he shocked the country by announcing on television that he would not run for re-election. Originally commissioned by the Seattle Rep, THE GREAT SOCIETY began its rolling world premier opening first at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival on July 27th, 2014. It played to 100% capacity. The second production will open in Seattle at the Rep on December 10, 2014 where - for the first time anywhere - it will run in rotating rep with ALL THE WAY until January 4, 2015.
