Katori Hall’s 2009 Two-Character Play, “The Mountaintop,” Treats MLK as a Man, Not as a Saint

The question asked in The Justice Theater Project’s production of Katori Hall’s 2009 two-character play The Mountaintop may well be “Can a flawed man lead society to the mountaintop it so desperately needs to climb?” We Americans love to find the feet of clay that our icons and idols stand on; but this play doesn’t… Read More ›

We find only one flaw in The Justice Theater Project’s production of Grey Gardens: The Musical, but we hope it will be corrected.

JTP’s Multimedia Presentation of “Molly Daughter” Is a Cry from the Heart, But Sometimes Hard to Follow
