    1. Another day, another play. All The Way is like an episode of The West Wing if it didn't have Martin Sheen and Rob Lowe. It tells the story of Lyndon B. Johnson's first year as "accidental" President of the United States, as he tries to pass the Civil Rights Act, while also trying to run a campaign for his first term as an elected president. The play highlights the dramatic vulgarity of LBJ's interactions with political and social figures, and does not shy away from framing him as an unpleasant i [...]


    2. Eh. It has some interesting things to say, but the script is relatively boring because it is very, very expository. It's teaching you a history lesson, and the dialogue is written primarily to give you information rather than to establish an emotional connection. Though there are some scenes that feel like they were thrown in there because the author said, "Oh no, we have to make LBJ seem human! Quick! Let's have a scene in his bedroom about all his self doubts!" It's not a terrible script, but [...]


    3. I am both a stage actor and an LBJ buff, so I was very excited to read this play. It is well worth it, but does not quite capture the frenetic pace of Johnson's first 11 months as president. As Robert Caro details in the fourth volume of his Johnson biography, LBJ was determined to use that year to legitimize himself as President Kennedy's successor, show up the Establishment powers that disdained him, and use his unique position as the first Southern president since the Civil War to push throug [...]



    4. What Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln did for film, Robert Schenkkan’s All the Way did for the theatre. Both works followed the journeys of American Chief Executives in the quest to pass revolutionary civil rights legislation. Mr. Schenkkan selected a much more controversial public servant for his story. While today Lyndon Baines Johnson takes the majority of blame for escalating the nation’s involvement in the Vietnam Conflict, the playwright chose to focus on the pinnacle of his domestic achie [...]


    5. No one can doubt the brilliance of All The Way.Thrust into the role of president after John F. Kennedy's assassination, Johnson wastes no time in forcing the Civil Rights Bill through congress against formidable opposition (something that Donald Trump could learn from). The second half, which I found very difficult to follow because of the complexity of groups haggling against Johnson's campaign for the presidency, is less satisfying. I doubt many theatres could afford to stage this play with a [...]


    6. Two acts. A sequential countdown to the election across both. LBJ gets the Civil Rights Act passed in Act One and then faces the fallout as time ticks down. The civil rights issues and particularly the exploration of murders and police abuse in act two make for dramatic stakes. Well done but not necessarily a genre that speaks to me.



    7. I had to read this for my American Literature class. My rating might vary, since we will discuss this play in class, and that might change my opinion on the play!



    8. Interesting political drama about LBJ's first year in office with the Civil Rights movement, Vietnam, and re-election as just a few of the balls the new president has to juggle. It's an intriguing drama with some interesting scene changes and use of technology, so I'd be very interested to see this done on stage and watch as attention draws from one character to the next in a seamless motion. It definitely took some background knowledge to understand who was who in the play, and unfortunately I [...]


    9. A great well written play about the first nine months of President Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency. It gives the clearest insight into Johnson's political genius and into his personality and insecurities and brilliant use of power. Also great insight into the personalities surrounding MLK and the divisions within the black political community at the time leading up to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill and the election of the same year. You'll come away with a better understanding of the players and how [...]


    10. Fascinating. This is a play about LBJ's early presidency - after JFK's death but before the election in November to 1964. Among other things he is struggling to get his Civil Rights Act through Congress. The political talk and machinations are dead-on. This was an era that formed my conscience and I was riveted throughout. (And I was kicking myself for not seeing the play are OSF when I could have, although we did see The Great Society - the companion play - the next year - great but with more o [...]


    11. As someone who loves both well written plays, and American History, (especially when it comes to politics,) this was a joy to read. The characters in this script are very human portrayals of real people which is a huge positive. The play builds like a crescendo and successfully ends without disappointing. A Very good read, that I highly recommend. Especially if you are like me and love your American history.



    12. This play, like the musical 1776, really shouldn't work. You know, going into it, what's going to happen. YET, this play is fast paced and absolutely heart pounding! A stunning achievement.


    13. Excellent - Now I will watch HBO version with Bryan Cranston who won Tony award for performance in the play on Broadway.


    14. It's not Robert Caro; but it's a good primer for anyone looking for insight into LBJ and the passage of presidential power to LBJ.
