It’s not personal – it’s just politics. November, 1963: an assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act – a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America – even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right and the recognition he so desperately wants. Together with Martin Luther King Jr. and an incredible cast of historical figures, they changed America – and the world. Arrive early for a free pre-show Table Talk Panel Discussion at 6:45 p.m.!
