It’s the season of Lorraine Hansberry. The Brooklyn Museum and the New York
Public Library both recently offered
exhibitions on her life, and now comes a Broadway revival of her 1959 drama
A Raisin in the Sun, which debuted on Broadway when she was only 28. Denzel Washington stars in Hansberry’s powerful story of three generations of a black family struggling to move up on Chicago’s South Side. Kenny Leon, who directed Washington in Fences, directs.
