The Mountaintop
February 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

April 3, 1968. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns to Memphis’ Lorraine Motel after delivering his famous “mountaintop” speech. There he is visited by a spirited young maid who challenges him to come to terms with his life’s unfinished business. This breathtaking re-imagining of the last night of one of America’s greatest heroes achieves what only theater can do – it brings Dr. King to immediate, spontaneously felt life. And in his presence, as embodied by beloved resident actor Joe Wilson, Jr., audiences get to experience, understand, and appreciate the whole man. Winner of England’s Olivier Award for Best Play, a hit on Broadway, and now one of the most produced plays in America.
