All the Way and The Great Society at Seattle Rep
At long last, the Tony Award-winning LBJ saga All the Way, has opened at Seattle Repertory Theatre. Even as he was writing it, Seattle playwright Robert Schenkkan knew there would probably be a sequel, and Seattle Repertory Theatre commissioned what would become The Great Society on the spot. In our conversation with Seattle Rep’s Artistic Director Braden Abraham, learn more about both plays, which will run in rep after The Great Society opens December 5th.

Marta’s conversation with Patti will definitely inspire you to check it out, but hurry – American Art Masterworks is only on view at SAM through December 7th!
