The stageshow, starring Jackson as civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., is based on playwright Katori Hall's reimagining of the events in Memphis, Tennessee on 3 April, 1968 - the night before King's assassination.

The play began previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in September (11) and it's proved to be a box office hit, recovering the full production costs just days before the curtain falls on the show for the final time on Sunday (22Jan12).
