With the jaw-dropping success of the Broadway blockbuster Hamilton, based on founding father Alexander Hamilton, there seems to be a demand for historically inspired theater. Northern Stage pleases theater lovers and history buffs alike with its production of The Mountaintop. Written by Katori Hall, this Laurence Olivier Award-winning drama provides a fictionalized portrayal of Martin Luther King Jr.’s final night, spent in a Memphis, Tenn., motel. The play, starring Charlie Hudson III and Brittany Bellizeare as a spirited housekeeper, confronts social issues troubling the civil rights leader in the spring of 1968 and, as director Carol Dunne declares, “captures the man behind the icon.”
