By Lorraine Hansberry
Directed by Robert O’Hara
Lorraine Hansberry’s A RAISIN IN THE SUN comes to Astor Place this fall in Hansberry’s Public Theater debut. Directed by Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara, this fresh look at a classic proves to be as provocative and powerful today as it was in 1959. Starring Tonya Pinkins as Lena Younger and Francois Battiste as Walter Lee Younger.
Lena Younger has decided to use her late husband’s life insurance to move her family out of their cramped apartment on Chicago’s South Side. Her son, Walter Lee, has other ideas. This innovative new production of an American classic fearlessly interrogates the American dream in the face of racial and economic strife.
Interpreters: Carllee James, Patrick Michael, Kathleen Taylor, Jasper Thacker-Bowell
