Bryan Cranston as Lyndon B. Johnson Bryan Cranston as Lyndon B. Johnson (American Repertory Theater)

Fans of “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston can see him up close at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Cranston stars as Lyndon B. Johnson in “All the Way,” a new play detailing Johnson’s first year in office after John F. Kennedy is assassinated. The drama follows Johnson as he moves quickly from a powerless Vice President to a success-driven leader.  

New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood shares his thoughts on Cranston’s portrayal of LBJ and the complexities of a play that focuses on politics and personality. “All the Way,” written by Robert Schenkkan and directed by Bob Rauch, is onstage until October 12, 2013.
