Katori Hall’s Oliver Award-Winning Play, The Mountaintop, which premiered on Broadway with Samuel Jackson and Angela Bassett at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on September 22, 2011, is making its way to Houston, Texas. The Alley Theatre in association with Arena Stage brings in actors Bowman Wright and Joaquina Kalukango (Hurt Village, Emotional Creature) to tackle this controversial Broadway hit which re-imagines the last night of Dr. Martin Luther King in the Lorraine Motel. “The Alley is pleased to join with one of our sister theatres, Arena Stage in Washington, D.C, to bring to our audiences Katori Hall’s compelling, powerful play. Hers is a brilliant new voice in the American theatre,” says Artistic Director Gregory Boyd.

The Alley production directed by Robert O’Hara (Wild With Happy, The Brother/Sister Plays, Eclipsed), costume design by Clint Ramos and lighting design by Japhy Weidman. Sound design is by Lindsay Jones with projection design by Jeff Sugg. Jacey Little is the dramaturg.

Performances began on January 11. The show will open officially Wednesday, January 16, and runs through Sunday, February 3, 2013, on the Hubbard Stage.
