Extraordinary things happen in Memphis, TN.
BY KATORI HALL
DIRECTED BY GREGG T. DANIEL
a masterpiece reaching historic heights
April 3, 1968. Memphis. The Lorraine Motel. Room 306. Tomorrow, it will become the scene of one of our nation’s greatest losses. But tonight, it is just another stopover motel for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Full of vivid theatricality, poetic language, and surprising twists, this drama takes us to the summit of a man’s historic life and offers a stunning new view of his dream for our nation.
What Critics are saying…
