Experience when politics and passion helped to shape America for good in this gripping drama, on stage January 24-February 15, 2020.
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company welcomes the New Year with All the Way. The production features a 17-person cast and offers special on-stage seating for patrons!
All the Way tells the story beginning in the wake of an assassination that shook a nation to its core, when a larger-than-life figure is propelled into the national spotlight. Faced with civil unrest at home and an unpopular war abroad, accidental president Lyndon B. Johnson struggles at the eleventh hour to get the hotly contested Civil Rights Act across the finish line, and to keep an already divided country from tearing itself apart.
The selection of All the Way in this season was inspired by the 2020 Centennial of Women’s Suffrage. From June of 1919 to August of 1920, these United States passed and ratified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. However, the passage of the 19th Amendment, while worthy of celebration, did not in fact guarantee voting rights for all.
The struggle for complete equality continued into the 1960’s and beyond. All the Way continues the story from inside the Oval Office with LBJ’s fight to enact the Civil Rights Act of 1964 working closely with Martin Luther King and other activists and politicians of the era.
On Stage seats start at $38 and are general admission and will be assigned first come, first served. You will meet before the start of the show at the foot of the stage to be seated. Sit on stage and join LBJ in the Oval Office for this unique theater experience.
