17 actors. Over 50 characters. One epic political drama.
Capturing Johnson’s passionate and aggressive attempts to build a just society for all, The Great Society follows his epic triumph in a landslide election to the agonizing decision not to run for re-election just three years later. It was an era that would define history forever: the rise of the Civil Rights Movement, the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, the escalation of the Vietnam War, and the creation of some of the greatest social programs America has ever known—and one man was at the center of it all: LBJ.
The Great Society stars Emmy® and Olivier Award winner Brian Cox (Succession, King Lear with the Royal Shakespeare Company) as LBJ, and introducing Grantham Coleman (Much Ado About Nothing at The Public) as Martin Luther King Jr. and Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) as Robert F. Kennedy.
“The Great Society demands to be seen. A brilliant extension of All The Way and a culmination of Schenkkan’s masterwork.” – BroadwayWorld
