Broadway in the Hood's The Mountaintop

On April 3, 1968, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech in Memphis that all but foretold his premature death. The next day, he was murdered. What might have happened between those two events while he relaxed inside the Lorraine Motel is the subject of The Mountaintop, Katori Hall’s 2009 Olivier Award-winning play. It comes to us, fittingly, at the start of Martin Luther King Weekend from Las Vegas-based Broadway in the Hood, which stages relevant works largely about the African-American experience. Times vary, $34, Troesh Studio at The Smith Center.
