Winner of London's Olivier Award for Best New Play, this gripping and poetic drama envisions the events that might have taken place the evening before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The fictional reimagining begins on April 3, 1968, as King finishes delivering his impassioned "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech. Exhausted, he retires to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where he encounters a spirited young maid with whom he forges an unexpected relationship. During a conversation that ranges from the personal to the political, King finds himself confronting his own destiny and the fate of the very nation he's devoted his life to. Learn More

Unwrap a present this summer with Winter Wonderettes. There’s no better way to cool off from the summer heat than a Christmas-in-July celebration with the return of the original four Marvelous Wonderettes in this sequel to ETC’s biggest box office hit ever. That’s right, Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy return to ETC’s stage for a winter wonderland delight this summer. All four original cast members, Sara Mackie, Mia Gentile, Brooke Rucidlo, and Denise Devlin will rejoin ETC for this exciting regional premiere that celebrates some of the greatest ‘60s holiday hits, including “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Santa Baby,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “The Man With the Bag.” Set in Harper’s Hardware on Christmas 1968, a few months after their 10-year high school reunion, Winter Wonderettes picks up where The Marvelous Wonderettes left off.
