Photo Flash: First Look at J. Bernard Calloway and Kikiya Mathis in Milwaukee Rep's THE MOUNTAINTOP
by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2012

On the eve of his assassination, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., cools down in a lonely Memphis hotel room after delivering the speech of a lifetime - when an unexpected visit from a feisty, young hotel maid pushes King into a confrontation with his doubts, fears and haunting premonitions.
