Hailed as "daring, rousing and provocative" by "Entertainment Weekly," THE MOUNTAINTOP is Katori Hall's bold reimagining of the last night of the historic life of Dr. Martin Luther King. Exhausted from delivering a significant speech, Dr. King rests in his room at the Lorraine Motel when an unexpected visit from a feisty, young maid compels him to confront his own humanity and the fate of our nation. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play, THE MOUNTAINTOP's "soul-stirring" (Variety) storytelling fuses theatricality with spirituality to reach a summit that will leave audiences breathless.
Join the DC Bar Foundation for a pre-performance reception with special guests (TBD) and the show. Proceeds will support the DC Bar Foundation's programs. Space is limited. Contact Danny Reed at 202.467.3750 x15 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your tickets today.
