The Cold Reading Series will present “ALL THE WAY” by Robert Schenkkan which tells the story of the tumultuous first year of Lyndon Baines Johnson’s presidency. To pass the landmark 1964 Civil Rights bill, LBJ struggles to overpower an intransigent Congress while also attempting to forge a compromise with Martin Luther King, Jr., and navigate the increasingly fractious Civil Rights Movement.
