The Harry Middleton Lectureship presents Bryan Cranston and Robert Schenkkan

Nov 14, 2013

This year, we were honored to be joined by Emmy Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad” and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and U.T. graduate Robert Schenkkan on Thursday, November 14 in the LBJ Auditorium. Cranston and Schenkkan discussed Schenkkan's new drama, "All the Way," an exploration of LBJ's first year in the presidency starring Cranston in the role of Lyndon Johnson. The play will have its Broadway premiere this winter.

About the Harry Middleton Lectureship:
Lady Bird Johnson established the Harry Middleton Lectureship in 1994 to honor the career, loyalty and legacy of Mr. Middleton, who served in the Johnson administration and as Director of the LBJ Library for 30 years.  The lectureship was designed to attract and enrich the learning experiences of U.T. students and the Austin community.  Speakers include former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Tom Brokaw, and playwright and film director David Mamet.  The lecture series is co-sponsored by the LBJ Presidential Library and the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation.
