WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

From the spirited, anarchic company that created last summer's 2007 Drama Desk nominated Marco Millions (based on lies) comes an all new theatrical event about one of America's most loved and misunderstood figures. Featuring an exuberant score of hard-edged rock, blues and funk, The Last Year in the Life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as Devised by Waterwell: A Rock Operetta draws on speeches, writings and interviews to give a blistering account of King as he barnstorms the country squaring off against the most powerful forces in politics and commerce. Facing criticism on all sides and even doubts from his closest advisors, he speaks his mind fearlessly and fights to the end against war, poverty and even his own government.
