You wouldn’t expect a ticket for a play about Lyndon Johnson tofetch $220 on Craigslist. The demand owes less to LBJ than to the man playing him on stage — Bryan Cranston.
In a career that has spanned more than 30 years, Cranston has attained A-list status in Hollywood for his portrayal of Walter White/Heisenberg on the groundbreaking TV series Breaking Bad, which concluded its six-season run a little over a week ago.
Now at the pinnacle of his profession, Cranston has the luxury to pick any project of his choosing and he has chosen to take to the stage to play LBJ in All the Way, which is near completion of a sold-out, month-long run at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
