1963. The day that JFK was assassinated in Dallas, Lyndon Baynes Johnson (LBJ) became the 37th President of the United States. The country was in shock and yet the business of the nation continued. The top priority was the Civil Rights Act, and in this Tony Award-winning Broadway play, LBJ, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Minnesota’s Hubert H. Humphrey take on a Congress divided on this hot button matter of policy. The KKK bombed black churches, Freedom Riders disappeared into the night, George Wallace held a tight grip on Alabama, and Bobby Kennedy posed a challenge to LBJ in the coming election and tensions ran high.

 “With cinematic sweep with an eye toward teasing out our parallels to our current gridlock.  Schenkkan traces the first year of  LBJ’s presidency.”  – Entertainment Weekly

 “…jaw dropping political drama.” – Variety
