Join WNDC again at Arena Stage for specially priced tickets to The Great Society by Robert Schenkkan. His Tony Award-winning play All the Way (which many WNDC Members and guests attended in May 2016) set the stage for President Lyndon Baines Johnson’s sudden ascent to the White House. The Great Society brings the second half of Schenkkan’s epic story to its harrowing conclusion. As America is divided by Civil Rights protests and the anguish of the Vietnam War, LBJ struggles to maintain his relationship with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., keep his political opponents in check and complete a raft of impossibly ambitious social policy projects. Kyle Donnelly again directs and Jack Willis reprises his “stunning performance” (Broadway World) as LBJ, exploding the America of our past to better understand the America of today.
PRICE: $50 Members: $55 Non-members (Play Only).
$72 Members, $77 Non-members (Incl. $22 pre-performance Prix Fixe 3-course buffet dinner).
