By Robert Schenkkan

Directed by Bill Rauch

1963. An assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon B. Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the Civil Rights Act, a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America. In the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright’s vivid dramatization of LBJ’s first year in office, means versus ends plays out on the precipice of modern America. This searing, enthralling exploration of the morality of power, premiered at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2012.

Inspired by the themes surrounding the play All the Way, we asked members of our A.R.T. community to tell us their stories and share their memories from 1963 and 1964. Click here to learn more about and share our My Story project.
