Words black on white The Mountaintop March 22-April 3

Sunday, April 1, 3-5pm
Also, April 3, 8-10pm
Short North Stage, 1187 N. High St.
Short North Stage and the King Arts Complex will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination with playwright Katori Hall’s gripping re-imagination of the last night of Dr. King’s life. While a storm rages outside his hotel room in Memphis, a mysterious stranger arrives, forcing Dr. King to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people. Magical and haunting.
NOTE: A special memorial performance of The Mountaintop will be presented on Tuesday, April 3—the eve of the anniversary of Dr. King’s death.
Reviewers loved the Mountaintop on Broadway:
“Even before the first flash of lightning—and there will be plenty of that before evening’s end—an ominous electricity crackles through the opening moments of THE MOUNTAINTOP.” —NY Times. 
“…as audacious as it is inventive…[a] thrilling, wild, provocative flight of magical realism…The King that is left after Hall’s humanization project is somehow more real and urgent and whole.” —Associated Press
