'The Mountaintop' will continue on Broadway through January 22.

The Broadway premiere of Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop, starring Samuel L. Jackson as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Angela Bassett, will continue its run at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre through January 22, 2012. Tickets had previously been on sale through January 15.

In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a special performance has added on Sunday, January 15, at 7:30 PM, in addition to the previously scheduled 3:00 PM matinee.

Set in Memphis’ Lorraine Motel on April 3, 1968, The Mountaintop re-imagines the events of the night before the assassination of the civil rights leader. After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people.

The Mountaintop began previews on September 22 and opened on October 13, directed by Kenny Leon.
