A play opening Thursday on Broadway takes a new look at the late Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., by imagining what his last night would have been like.

"The Mountaintop" stars Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett.

Rev. King's talk of going to "the mountaintop," words from his last speech, form the title of the play, by Katori Hall, set in Memphis during his final hours.

The time is late on the night of April 3, 1968, and the preacher has just spoken words that will soon seem like a prophecy.

Check out Sandy Kenyon's preview.
