Sedona AZ (January 18, 2018) – The Collective Sedona is pleased to announce a nationally-recognized and critically-acclaimed play coming to Vista Hall in February. The Collective Sedona is also introducing a brand-new format for their monthly Second Saturday Artwalks.
The Emerson Theater Collaborative presents The Mountaintop, a play by American playwright Katori Hall, which is a fictional depiction of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s last night on earth set entirely in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel on the eve of his assassination in 1968. The Mountaintop is directed by Michele Lamar Richards and produced by Camilla Ross. In 2010, the critically acclaimed play premiered in London to sold-out audiences, won an Olivier Award, and made its way back to Trafalgar Studios in the West End for American audiences. It premiered on Broadway in 2011 starring Angela Bassett and Samuel L. Jackson.
This production was produced by special arrangement of Dramatist Play Service, Inc. New York. Show dates are February 23rd and February 24th at 7pm and February 25th at 2pm at The Collective Sedona’s Vista Hall event center (second floor). Tickets are $25 and $20 for seniors and students.
