THE MOUNTAINTOP (People’s Light): An original vision of Martin Luther King

Katori Hall’s creative re-imagining of Martin Luther King’s final night before his assassination in 1968 is delivered through forceful performances and an evocative design.

WILD WITH HAPPY (Center Stage, Baltimore): All That and More!

Cathartic, camp, and euphorically uplifting, WILD WITH HAPPY—Philadelphia native Colman Domingo’s madcap adventure with death and grief, love, loss, and sexuality—keeps you laughing while tugging at your heartstrings and ardently reaffirming the joy of life. That’s quite an accomplishment, and Center Stage’s Baltimore premiere is quite a production.
