The Mountaintop

Featuring NYC Equity guest actors J. Jerome Rogers and Crystin Gilmore, The Mountaintop is a compelling, fictional depiction of Martin Luther King Jr’s last night on earth set entirely in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel on the eve of his assassination in 1968.

The night before his assassination, Martin Luther King, Jr. returns to the Lorraine Hotel after delivering his last impassioned speech, I’ve Been to the Mountaintop. A mysterious maid delivers his room service, though she seems to have more on her agenda than a simple meal. As their conversation progresses, true intentions come to light in a story written to humanize Dr. King, to help us understand that you don’t have to be superhuman to be a hero.
