Theater Review | THE GREAT SOCIETY by Robert Schenkkan at Oregon Shakespeare Festival

"Part 2 of Robert Schenkkan’s far-reaching, massive portrait of President Lyndon Baines Johnson is an epic tragedy that explores the tradeoffs and perils of governing through the unprecedented political upheavals and competing social priorities of late 1960’s America.

Following up on the wildly successful part 1 (ALL THE WAY), THE GREAT SOCIETY continues a profound and searching engagement with a key era of recent US history, some of the battle lines from which – particularly in regard to Congressional fights over budget cutting – remain active today.

By looking back, Schenkkan examines who we are, asks how we got here, and dreams of what the United States could yet become." To read more, click here.
