New Play The Mountaintop Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Basett Now On Sale

That's right theatre fans. One of these season's most highly anticipated new shows is now on sale. The Mountaintop, a new play starring Academy Award nominees Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett is set to begin previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on September 22 with opening night scheduled for October 13. The strictly limited engagement will run thru January 15,2012. The show which was written by up and coming playwright Katori Hall first premiered at Theatre 503 in June 2009 before transferring to the West End where it won the 2010 Olivier Award for Best Play.

Here is a brief description of the show from it's press agent. "Taking place on April 3, 1968, The Mountaintop, press notes state, is a "gripping reimagining of events the night before the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After delivering his legendary ‘I've Been to the Mountaintop’ speech, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious young woman delivers room service, King is forced to confront his past, as well as his legacy to his people."

Sounds like a winner to me. By the way for those of you who want tickets to see this sure fire hit you have come to the right place my friends. Good seats are now available. Not only that but from now thru November 10 you can get them for below face value. That's right. I said below face value. Good seats are still available so don't delay. Get your tickets to see Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett in The Mountaintop on Broadway. Expect this show to be a big contender at next year's Tony Awards. Until next time theatre fans.
