A Raisin in the Sun Synopsis: “A Raisin in the Sun is a heart-wrenching family drama by playwright Lorraine Hansberry which originally premiered on Broadway in 1959 and starred legendary actor, Sir Sidney Poitier. The historic 2014 revival will run at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, the very same venue in which the original play debuted almost 55 years ago, and will be directed by Kenny Leon. This landmark drama was one of the very first plays on Broadway to take an in-depth look at the experiences of African-American families in pre-civil rights USA. Although Hansberry’s groundbreaking play was initially considered to be a risky investment, it went on to run for nearly two years, received four Tony nominations and was the first play written by an African-American woman to be produced on Broadway.” Source: http://www.newyorkcitytheatre.com
