L.A. Theater Works brings The Mountaintop to life in live radio theater – starring Karen Malina White (Lean On Me, The Cosby Show, How To Get Away With Murder) and Gilbert Glenn Brown (Stranger Things, The Inspectors, Drumline).
Sponsored by Karen Pugh, Vita Green LLC, and Warm Springs Inn & Winery.
On the evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside The Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside room 306 the night before is a mystery. In her internationally acclaimed play, “The Mountaintop,” playwright Katori Hall fantasizes what may have transpired in the overnight hours between the legendary civil rights leader and a seemingly inconsequential hotel maid. Contains some mature language.
Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop is rife with humor and political jabs, while giving us a glimpse at the human side of Martin Luther King Jr. Hours after his famed final speech, punctuated by the immortal line, “I’ve been to the mountaintop,” the celebrated Reverend reveals his hopes, regrets, and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality as the world marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr.
