Katori Hall is an Olivier Award-winning and two-time Tony-nominated native of Memphis, Tenn. She is the bookwriter and co-producer of the West End and Broadway hit, "Tina: The Tina Turner Musical." She’s also the executive producer and showrunner of "P-VALLEY," the breakout Starz drama.
Katori Hall’s latest piece, "The Hot Wing King," premiered in Spring 2020 at the Signature Theatre, rounding out her three-play residency. She is, perhaps, best known for "The Mountaintop." The play, which fictionalizes the last night in Martin Luther King’s life, won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010 before opening on Broadway in October 2011 to critical acclaim. Katori’s other works include the award-winning "Hurt Village," "Hoodoo Love," "Saturday Night/Sunday Morning," "Our Lady of Kibeho," and "The Blood Quilt."

Katori Hall is an alumna of Columbia University, ART at Harvard University and Juilliard.
