The Mountaintop’

Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson makes his Broadway debut as Civil Rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in Katori Hall’s Olivier Award-winning play “The Mountaintop.” Hall’s imagination leads the audience back to the gripping series of events that occurred the night before the assassination of Dr. King. At the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, a mysterious female character, played by Angela Bassett, forces Dr. King to confront both his past and his legacy to his people. “The Mountaintop” opens Oct. 13 on at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on 45th Street.
