A collaboration with the St. Paul History Theatre's production of All The Way.
The Theater of Public Policy is doing a special show October 17 in collaboration with the History Theater's productions of All The Way, which tells the story of LBJ, MLK, and Humphrey working to pass civil rights legislation.
We will talk on stage with University of Minnesota Professor of African American and African Studies, Keith Mayes. We'll ask him about how the civil rights movement of the 1960s is similar or different to today's fights for equity and action.

What is the show?
Our interview based show is a powerful medium for exploring issues and bringing them to life using theater. All of the ideas and challenges brought up in this conversation serve as the inspiration for the improvised scenes to follow. The improvisers tasks are not to make light of the issues or mock the players involved. Instead, scenes make the previous conversation come to life with living, breathing characters in the situations described. It’s a show unlike any other.
