It’s almost impossible to get a ticket to the American Repertory Theater’s production of “All the Way.” For most of us, that is. The show, starring “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon Johnson, opened last week, and there were a few familiar faces in the audience, including Governor Deval Patrick and first lady Diane Patrick, actor Courtney B. Vance, ART founding director Robert Brustein, Pultizer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of “Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream,” and husband Richard Goodwin, actress Annette O’Toole, whose husband Michael McKean costars in the play, Newbury Comics owner Mike Dreese, ART trustees Mike Sheehan, Rebecca Milikowsky, and Steven Johnson, and the company’s artistic director Diane Paulus. “All the Way” runs through Oct. 12. . . . Without alerting the theater beforehand, playwright Alfred Uhry’s daughter Elizabeth attended the Gloucester Stage Co.’s production of her father’s best-known work, “Driving Miss Daisy,” last week. . . . Auti Angel, of The Sundance Channel reality “Push Girls,” dined at LTK Bar and Kitchen in the Seaport District. . . . Former Sox captain Jason Varitek was at Forum Bar and Restaurant on Boylston Street.
