The production team (cast & crew) for Katori Hall's award-winning play, The Mountaintop, which will be directed by Kenny Leon, continues to shape up.
We already know that Angela Bassett will portray the character that once belonged to Halle Berry - "Camae," opposite Samuel L. Jackson's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..
Today brings word that Grammy Award-winning saxophonist and Tony Award nominee Branford Marsalis has signed on as the composer for the upcoming Broadway run of the show. Marsalis, who also served the same function for last year's Fences revival, will also compose original music for The Mountaintop.
The show opens October 13. Show times will be Tuesday at 7 PM, Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM, with matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM, and Sunday at 3 PM.
Tickets are now officially on sale, ranging from $75 to $125; you can pick up yours by visiting Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
If you prefer to purchase at the theater box office (the Jacobs Theatre on 242 West 45th Street), you will be able to do so starting on August 11.
