Join WNDC members and guests at Arena Stage for specially priced tickets to this 2014 Tony Award-winning drama about President Lyndon B. Johnson and his masterful deal making. He could massage a victory with one hand and twist your arm with the other. But brokering a deal is like playing with dynamite. With the country still reeling from President Kennedy’s assassination, and a rising tide of bitterness over Civil Rights, it took more than politicking to hold America together — it took red, white and blue-blooded leadership. Go all the way with LBJ, Martin Luther King, J. Edgar Hoover and more in this “beautifully built dramatic piece” (Variety) where the line between compromise and compromising your principles is as sharp as a knife.
