L.A. Theatre Works: "The Mountaintop"

-

Location: Leighton Concert Hall - DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

La Mountaintop0 15d67826 5056 A36a 08cc8ac6dcdb3389

Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop imagines what happened inside the Lorraine Motel’s room 306 the night before April 4, 1968. In the expert hands of L.A. Theatre Works and an experienced touring cast, Katori Hall’s fictional reimagining begins in Memphis in April 1968, as King finishes delivering his impassioned “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech. Exhausted, he retires to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel, where he encounters a young hotel maid with whom he forges an unexpected relationship. During a conversation that ranges from the personal to the political, King finds himself confronting his destiny and the fate of the very nation to which he’s devoted his life.
