A Raisin in the Sun New York Tickets

A Raisin in the Sun New York Tickets

A Raisin in the Sun New York Plot

Are you a fan of the traditional arts? Do you like to go out to the theater and see some of the more classic shows there are rather than the popular new ones like Jersey Boys or Cirque du Soleil shows? That's okay, StubHub still has plenty of options available for you as the world of traditional theater and opera is still alive and well. Shows like A Raisin in the Sun, one of the most popular plays to ever grace the stage! A Raisin in the Sun was first released in the late 1950s as a commentary on the role of African Americans in the post-war world. Mama, as she's affectionately known in the play, is the mother of Walter, who along with his wife Ruth, their son Travis, and his sister Beneatha, all live together in a cramped apartment in Chicago. Mama receives an insurance check for a lot of money and the group tries to decide whether or not they should stay in their own neighborhood and upgrade to a pricier place, or move to a cheaper house that happens to be in the traditionally white neighborhood on the other side of town. This show analyzes what it means not only to have been a minority in America at this time, but also deals with important themes like identity and status as Beneatha tries to decide between suitors, one of whom is wealthy and in her view has forsaken his roots, the other is poor and in touch with his heritage. If you were hoping to get a glimpse of what life was like for many Americans just before the Civil Rights Act was passed, this is the right show for you! Don't miss out and get your tickets through StubHub to see A Raisin in the Sun when it opens for the stage near you!

A Raisin in the Sun New York Cast

A Raisin in the Sun has been a popular show since it first graced the stage in 1959, and since the following of the film in 1961, casting directors have had a hard time picking actors for this show. Not because the parts are simply too difficult (though they are very difficult roles), but because following the popularity and success of the film, finding actors to match the performances of Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, Claudia McNeil, Diana Sands, Roy Glenn, and Louis Rossett has been hard. When the 2004 revival of the show came around, it was starred in by Sean Combs, Audra McDonald, Phylicia Rashad, Sanaa Lathan, Bill Nunn, David Aaron Baker, and more. Though that cast did an amazing job, the iteration of the show for 2014 has brought yet another crop of amazing performers to the stage for this show, including Denzel Washington, Sophie Okonedo, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Anika Noni Rose, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and David Cromer. Don't miss your opportunity to see this classic show when it comes to the stage, get your tickets to see A Raisin in the Sun through StubHub today!


A Raisin in the Sun New York Author

A Raisin in the Sun was originally written by popular American playwright Lorraine Hansberry. Lorraine Hansberry holds the distinction of being the first woman to write a Broadway play (which was A Raisin in the Sun), but her talents and skills as a playwright don't stop there. Though she tried for many years to shop a screenplay of A Raisin in the Sun to various movie studios, she found that they were rejected until Columbia Pictures agreed to make the film in 1961. Lorraine Hansberry is also the other of several other popular stage shows and essays, including The Drinking Gourd, What Use Are Flowers?, The Arrival of Mr. Todog, The Sign In Sydney Brustein's Window, To Be Young, Gifted, and Black, and more! If you're not as familiar with Lorraine Hansberry's work as you'd like to be, you should head out to StubHub as soon as you can to pick up your tickets to see A Raisin in the Sun when it opens for the stage near you.
