THE STORY:

On the eve of his assassination, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., cools down in a lonely Memphis hotel room after delivering the speech of a lifetime— when an unexpected visit from a feisty, young hotel maid pushes King into a confrontation with his doubts, fears, and haunting premonitions.

A soul-stirring hit in London and on Broadway, The Mountaintop’s humorous, magical storytelling fuses theatricality with spirituality to reach a summit that will leave audiences breathless.
