"PLAY CAPTURES TUMULT OF CIVIL RIGHTS ERA" - THE ROOT

"All the Way, which closes Oct. 12, is an important contribution to a national conversation about race and democracy that is happening in America. It exemplifies why talking about race and American history is so vital to the future of democracy and movements for racial equality and economic justice.

Ultimately, in its evocative and multidimensional rendering of a key chapter in the civil rights era's heroic period, All the Way reminds us of the stakes of political transformation when millions of lives are in the balance. The production's flesh-and-blood approach to the confrontations, disputes, heartbreak and successes of the civil rights struggle offers a hopeful and much-needed corrective to the mainstream remembrances that threaten to mythologize the era and its heroes, as well as to a contemporary political dysfunction that makes us long for a past when Americans seemed capable of doing the impossible."
