The Big Deal: Dallas Theater Center Presents The Great Society: Part 2 Of All The Way

by Zoee Acosta 28 Feb 2018 8:32 AM

Dallas Theater Center presents“The Great Society: Part 2 of All the Way.” Following the success of DTC’s 2016 production of “All the Way,” “The Great Society” continues the story of Lyndon B. Johnson’s turbulent presidency in the second part of Robert Schenkkan’s epic theatrical event. While the president fights a “war on poverty” at home, his war in Viet Nam begins to spiral out of control. Besieged by political enemies, Johnson desperately fights to pass civil rights legislation and some of the most important social programs in American history, even as the country turns against him and descends into chaos. Filled with a cast of legendary characters—from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Bobby Kennedy and Richard Nixon—”The Great Society” is an exhilarating examination of power, morality, and change. The show runs March 9-April 1, at the Wyly Theatre.
