Event description: An adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, won the 1974 Tony Award for Best Musical featuring dynamic performances by Debbie Allen and Joe Morton and a Grammy Award for Best Score from the Original Cast Album, and a national tour followed. Astoria Performing Arts Center's production will be the first time the show has been fully produced in New York City since its initial Broadway run.

Set in segregated 1950s Chicago, Walter Lee Younger and his mother, Lena, fight over the spending of insurance money. He wants to start a business with friends, while she is eager to move the family out of the South Side and into a white middle-class neighborhood. Pulsing with the musical beat of the city, Raisin depicts a black family’s struggle in the face of change.

Book by Robert Nemiroff and Charlotte Zaltzberg Music by Judd Woldin Lyrics by Robert Brittan Based on Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin In The Sun | Raisin is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. Directed by Dev Bondarin
