The Alley Theatre tonight (Jan. 29, 2016) debuts All the Way, a play about Lyndon B. Johnson’s early years as president and the political maneuvering needed to pass the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The play, from Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan, draws its name from a Johnson campaign slogan from 1964 and is a collaboration with Dallas Theater Center. After a run in Houston, the show will shift to Dallas.

Michael Hagerty asked director Kevin Moriarty why a play about LBJ.
