The Great Society
By Robert Schnekkan
Directed by Nicole A. Watson
“Pure, breathtaking entertainment”
–Seattle Seattle Weekly
On the heels of Asolo Rep’s wildly successful All the Way, The Great Society continues Robert Schenkkan’s profound exploration of President Lyndon Johnson’s turbulent years in the White House. Besieged by political opponents, Johnson summons all his political wiles to advance his vision of a Great Society. Despite deep division over the Vietnam War and ongoing civil rights battles, Johnson championed the most ambitious effort ever to test what American government is capable of achieving. By looking back, The Great Society examines who we are, asks how we got here, and dreams of what we could yet become.
