Mountain Top




I had an excellent time last night in a New York theatre viewing the stage production Mountain Top.  It is about Martin Luther King’s last night in the Loraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.  It’s very interesting, the story of Martin as a nervous man, rather than a fearless leader.  It is full of comedy, and has a powerful message as well.  Samuel L. Jackson, and Angela Basset do an excellent job as is to be expected.  Angela Basset’s monologue at the end is phenomenal, not to mention, she still has that “Tina Turner”-body shape, those (kick-Ike’s-ass) arms and all.  It’s not even a history lesson, or historical must-see piece, it is a peek into the thoughts of a man going through a troublesome time.  This play is only running until January, but I suggest if you are able you should go see this production.  It is very interesting and entertaining.
