The Mountaintop @ Broadway in the Hood

The entire play is set in a room at the Lorraine Hotel the evening before his assassination. In The Mountaintop, an exhausted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns from a prophetic speech during the sanitation workers’ strike and is visited by a mysterious maid, Camae, with a much greater mission than delivering his coffee. With vivid theatrical imagination and powerful emotion, playwright Katori Hall beautifully fictionalizes the final hours of Dr. King’s life in this Olivier Award-winning drama about leadership, legacy and mortality.
