Broadway: Breaking Bad star goes from meth to the White House

As "Walter White" in Breaking Bad, actor Bryan Cranston played a dynamic character whose profession had a profound influence on many lives.  In 2014, Cranston is taking his talents to Broadway in All the Way, where he plays U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, a larger-than-life figure who had profound influence on hundreds of millions of lives throughout the world.

All The Way, with previews beginning on February 10, traces Johnson's first year in office following the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy. It includes interactions he had with Martin Luther King and J. Edgar Hoover, who were also huge personalities of their time.  With all of President Johnson's highs and lows, Cranston's award-winning work in Breaking Bad might be the perfect prelude to his role as a complex politician who was thrust into power during a very turbulent time in American history.

Shackman Associates provides corporate meeting, association convention and destination incentive groups with unique Broadway experiences that have included backstage tours and interaction with key performers.
