Breaking Bad star and Emmy winner Bryan Cranston will make his Broadway debut starring as our 36th president, Lyndon Johnson, in All the Way.

TIME previously reported rumors that the sold-out show in Cambridge, Mass. would head to New York. Pulitzer Prize winning-playwright Robert Schenkkan tweeted the news on Oct. 4 and producer Jeffery Richards confirmed the move, to the New York Times on Sunday.

The production runs three hours and will be one of the longest plays on Broadway in recent memory. The plot follows Johnson during his first years in office after President Kennedy’s assassination. Performances are expected to start in the winter, though Richards could not yet confirm a specific theater or date.
