New York Alumni Chapter announces dates to remember

Come and join the Roosevelt University New York Area Alumni Chapter for an afternoon on Broadway!

Come see The Mountaintop with the RU NYC Alumni Chapter on Sunday, January 15 at 3:00pm.  The production has had great reviews since the very first showing, so it’s only right that we get to witness the remarkable performance of Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett.

About the Play…

Taking place on April 3, 1968, THE MOUNTAINTOP is a gripping reimagining of events the night before the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King (Samuel L. Jackson) retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger (Angela Bassett) arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people.

 We have a special group rate for tickets in the first balcony for $64.50. Tickets are limited so reserve yours by visiting

 Please contact Jodi Kurtze at or 312-341-2421 with additional questions.
