In honor of Martin Luther King Day, The Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center Presents The Meeting by Jeff Stetson. This production will be directed by Patrick Mitchell, featuring Patrick Mitchell and Whit Whitaker.
The action takes place in a suite high up in a Harlem hotel, where Malcolm X and his bodyguard, Rashad, rest before Malcolm's fateful appearance at the Audubon Ballroom. Malcolm has requested a secret meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who is also in New York, and Dr. King has responded by trudging up the back stairs to Malcolm's suite. Cautious at first, the two quickly fall into a spirited debate about their differing approaches to improving the lot of the black man in a predominantly white society.
This Production is free and open to the public.
