REVIEW: “The Mountaintop” at the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company

by Jeannie Marlin Woods The setting for THE MOUNTAINTOP is extremely specific: Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel, in Memphis, Tennessee. The date, April 3, 1968, is full of significance. It is the day before the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be assassinated on the balcony of the…
