    Presented by the College of Fine Arts (The University Series)

    In this award-winning Broadway play, author Katori Hall imagines a provocative conversation between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a mysteriously shrewd motel maid on the night before King’s death. Shortly after saying, in his final speech, "I've been to the mountaintop," King finds himself in a poetic and stormy clash of perspectives as performed by acclaimed radio theatre company L.A. Theatre Works. Contains mature language and controversial themes.

    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    The play opens with Gottlieb Biedermann, a successful businessman and pillar of his community, muttering about the stupidity of his fellow townspeople, who have allowed strangers to move into their attics and then to set fire to their houses. Enter Sepp Schmitz, an out-of-work professional wrestler who needs a place to spend the night. Before long, Schmitz and his friend Eisenring have moved in, and they seem to be stocking up on sawdust and barrels of gasoline. There’s a little satire mixed into this blend of epic theatre and absurdist comedy. Tickets: $15 adults, $10 seniors and $7.50 students/youth.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
