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.
