)-- Broadway actor, Laurence Luckinbill, brings the story of Lyndon Johnson to the North Coast Rep Stage with LYNDON!, one night only, May 8, 2017 at 7:30pm.
Lyndon Johnson, the greatest master of Congress in our history, came to the presidency after the assassination of John K. Kennedy. He was a brilliant and disciplined liberal Democrat who created two hundred pieces of domestic legislation for the American people. His plan to create a Great Society was a magnificent dream. It is an astonishing record of great achievement. He was a great man, a great American, and Laurence Luckinbill’s LYNDON! tells that story graphically, hilariously, and furiously, and in his own words.
Laurence Luckinbill has been writing and acting in his own award-winning solo performances portraying four great Americans -- Lyndon Johnson, Clarence Darrow, Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway -- for almost two decades. In his sixty plus year career, Mr. Luckinbill has starred on Broadway, off-Broadway, in television and in movies. He has been awarded an Emmy Award, a Critic’s Choice Circle Award, a Silver Gavel Award, as well as a Tony nomination and a Drama Desk Award nomination. In 2007, he was inducted into the Arkansas Entertainer’s Hall of Fame.
Tickets for the performance are $25. To order tickets, please visit www.northcoastrep.org, or call the box office: 858-481-1055.
