“The Mountaintop”, directed by Stephanie Johnson and written by Katori Hall, is a gripping reimagination of events the night before the assassination of the civic rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr (George Stern) On April 3, 1968, after delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retired to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside.

When a mysterious stranger (Naomi Taylor) arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to the people.
​“Even before the first flash of lightning an ominous electricity crackles through the opening moments of “The Mountaintop”. The New York Time”
​“…as audacious as it is inventive…a wild, provocative flight of magical realism…. This is a playwright without a net, a defiant poke in the eye of all historical conventions and political correctness…The King that is left after Hall’s humanization project is somehow more real and urgent”Associated Press.
