OUR 2015-16 SEASON - Experience Great Performances
The Mountaintop by Katori Hall | Directed by Roger Guenveur Smith
Starring Larry Powell and Aja Naomi King
On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside of his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside room 306 on the evening of April 3 is the subject of Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop. Hours after King’s final speech, punctuated by his immortal line, “I’ve been to the mountaintop,” the celebrated Reverend forms an unlikely friendship with a motel maid as they talk into the early hours of what will be his final day.
It is a relationship that is breathtaking, hilarious and heart-stopping.

God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton | Directed by Rosalind Ayres
Starring Geoffrey Arend, Jocelyn Towne, Simon Helberg and Stephanie Beatriz
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award®, God of Carnage is a brash and hilarious exploration of human nature. After one 11-year-old is hit by another, their parents meet to find a mature resolution. As the evening wears on, the veneer of civility degenerates. What begins as protective parenting ends as an excuse to let loose the primordial beast buried in each of us.
A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment with an intellectual veneer.

Boy by Anna Ziegler | Directed by Debbie Devine

When a botched medical procedure leads to a boy being raised as a girl, the consequences are far-reaching — for both doctor and patient.
