The Mountaintop

Celebration Arts’ latest play takes place entirely in Martin Luther King Jr.’s room at the Lorraine Motel the night before his 1968 assassination. James Ellison has the mammoth task of representing a historic icon, weaving boyish charm and ego together to channel King’s mannerisms and vigor for justice, and Sené Goss truly sparkles as the enigmatic Camae. Thu 8pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 8pm, Sun 2pm; Through 6/30; $10-$20; Celebration Arts, 2727 B Street; (916) 455-2787;
