A Little Bit of Broadway

Raisin
(1973)

The Tony Award for best musical in 1973 went to Raisin, a musical version of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. The story of the Younger Family played for almost 850 performances. Set in Chicago in 1951, the tension is between Mama's desire to move out of the ghetto and her son's desire to own his own liquor store. Who wins? -- attend Perserverance Theater's production of the play!
