About "Raisin"

Music by Judd Woldin
Lyrics by Robert Brittan
Book by Robert Nemiroff and Charlotte Zaltzberg
Directed and choreographed by Kenneth L. Roberson (Original choreographer Avenue Q and All Shook Up on Broadway)
Based on the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

With a terrific Grammy-winning score that combines jazz, gospel and 70’s pop, this powerful, uplifting musical adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun won the 1974 Tony Award for Best Musical. Set in Chicago in 1951, it follows the struggles of a Chicago family, the first African Americans to buy a house in the all-white neighborhood of Clybourne Park. Ambition nearly rips the family apart as Raisin travels from jubilation to heartbreak to ultimate triumph, while reaching for a piece of the American Dream.

This production is 2 hours and 30 minutes including one intermission.

WARNING! This production contains Haze and simulated violence.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.
