From the creative team behind the Tony®-winning Best Play, All The Way, comes a thrilling new play about the LBJ legacy: The Great Society.

17 actors. Over 50 characters. One epic political drama. Capturing Johnson’s passionate and aggressive attempts to build a just society for all, The Great Society follows his epic triumph in a landslide election to the agonizing decision not to run for re-election just three years later. It was an era that would define history forever: the rise of the Civil Rights Movement, the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, the escalation of the Vietnam War, and the creation of some of the greatest social programs America has ever known—and one man was at the center of it all: LBJ.

“It shines a bright, clear light on a pivotal moment in American history. Impressive in its scope and surprisingly energetic. I came away more impressed than I was with All The Way—and, ultimately, more moved.” - The New York Times

“Panoramic, enthralling and forcefully evokes a tumultuous era.” - The Seattle Times

The Great Society demands to be seen. A brilliant extension of All The Way and a culmination of Schenkkan’s masterwork.” – BroadwayWorld
