Kenny Leon, the Atlanta Arts hometown hero, has brought his play 'Mountaintop' from Broadway to the Southwest Arts Center for Atlanta audiences to enjoy.
Mountaintop is a re-imagined scenario of what Martin Luther King's last night alive may have been like in the Lorraine Motel. The play stars Broadway's Danny Johnson and Demetria McKinney from "The Rickey Smiley Show", and is said to be a gripping tale that shows Dr. King as "a man and exemplifies his love for God, family, and country through a transformative surprise."
Written by Katori Hall and directed by another Southwest Atlanta hero, Jasmine Guy, the production won a 2010 Olivier Award Winner for Best New Play.
The play is running from now until December 16th at the Southwest Arts Center, 915 New Hope Road Southwest, Atlanta, GA 30331.
There is a special showing next week that will include a Q & A with Kenny Leon about the Atlanta production and how it is different from the Broadway production. The Q&A will be after the Tuesday, November 20th show. A Special Deal is available that evening: All seats are $20 with Promo Code: TUESDAY
Tickets at $30 are available online at www.truecolorstheatre.org or call 1.877.725.8849
