The American Theatre Critics Association (ATCA) has selected Robert Schenkkan’s meditation on power and pragmatism, All The Way, as the recipient of the Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, recognizing playwrights for scripts that premiered professionally outside New York City during 2012. Schenkkan’s play about Lyndon Johnson’s dogged campaign to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 received the top award of $25,000 and a commemorative plaque during the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville on April 6. Two citations that carry $7,500 each were also presented to Lucas Hnath for Death Tax and Johnna Adams for Gidion’s Knot.
