Oregon Shakespeare Festival's "All the Way" received two Tony Award nominations this morning: Best new play and best performance by a leading actor.
"All the Way," written by Robert Schenkkan, premiered at OSF in 2012 and is now running on Broadway under the direction of OSF Artistic Director Bill Rauch.
Bryan Cranston plays the leading role of President Lyndon B. Johnson in the play, which started as a commission for OSF's American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle.
"All the Way" depicts Johnson's contentious and nation-changing first year in office as he seeks to forge his own legacy by passing the Civil Rights Act.
In February 2013, "All the Way" was named co-winner of the inaugural Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History.
