    The Great Society

    Presented by at Topfer Theater at ZACH Theater

    January 25 - March 5, 2017


    The Great Society

    The Texas Premiere of The Great Society

    This is the second of Robert Schenkkan’s LBJ plays exploring Texas’ own political mastermind and his memorable years in the White House. Despite division over the Vietnam War and ongoing civil rights issues, Johnson championed the most ambitious legislative work – an end to poverty and racial injustice, education for all schoolchildren, healthcare for seniors, and voting rights – in his vision of a Great Society. In this political thrill ride, The Great Society examines who we are, asks how we got here, and dreams of how great we could yet become.

    Run time: Three hours including two intermissions. 
    Recommendation: Thirteen and up. Adult language.

    Please note that The Great Society Saturday matinee begins at 2 p.m., earlier than most ZACH matinees.
