March 8, 2014

Broadway Review: Bryan Cranston as LBJ in "ALL THE WAY"
March 8, 2014
Bryan Cranston owns the role of LBJ in this beautifully built dramatic piece. VARIETY.
"What do you say we take up a collection and send every one of those clowns in Congress to “All the Way,” Robert Schenkkan’s jaw-dropping political drama about President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Herculean efforts (and Pyrrhic sacrifices) to get the 1964 Civil Rights Act passed. Bryan Cranston— three-time Emmy winner and everybody’s favorite bad boy as the scholarly drug czar in “Breaking Bad” — owns the role of LBJ, cracking the politician’s hard shell to expose the man’s personal crisis of conscience. But the shocker is watching real legislators legislating, crossing the aisle, however reluctantly, to get difficult things done." To read more, click here.
WASHINGTON POWER PLAY Bryan Cranston as President Johnson in ALL THE WAY
March 8, 2014
New York Times Review
“It’s not personal, Dick, it’s just politics,” Lyndon Johnson says to a good friend who has suddenly turned into a vanquished foe in the new play “All the Way,” by Robert Schenkkan. Johnson, played by Bryan Cranston in the mighty slab of history that opened at the Neil Simon Theater on Thursday night, infuses that glib phrase with palpable urgency and a whisper of tenderness. There’s no question that he really means what he’s saying." To read more, click here
Will the Real LBJ Please Stand Up?
March 1, 2014
From David Goodman's blog post:
"As the brother of Andrew Goodman, I’ve met quite a few presidents, but I never did meet Lyndon Johnson (LBJ). Still, I’ve listened to his White House tapes (a practice that stopped after Richard Nixon – well…duh!) and I’ve read histories and heard my mother’s stories of being in the Oval Office when Andy was missing.
So, it was a rare treat to be invited to see the new play “All the Way,” which is in previews at the Neil Simon theater. Nothing prepared me for the accuracy and vitality of Robert Schenkkan’s script – brought to life by an outstanding cast and an amazing set." To read more click here.
