April 4, 1968. Memphis. The Lorraine Motel. A time and place burned into the American psyche. But what about April 3? How did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., spend his last night on Earth? Playwright Katori Hall creates a surrealistic fantasy in this breakout Broadway hit about a chance encounter between King and a mysterious hotel maid who brings him a cup of coffee and prompts him to confront his life, his legacy and the plight and future of his people.
The running time for The Mountaintop is approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission.
