An amazing performance from an amazing cast.Broadway has never looked better. Denzel pours his heart and soul into his character as does everyone else. Sean Patrick Thomas was outstanding in his role. Definitely worth the price of admission....and then some.

All the actors were excellent and worked together superbly. The only problem was the guy behind me laughing so loud I couldn't hear the next line. Laugh quietly if possible :):)

Denzel Washington is my favorite actor and when I found out he was starring in the play "A Raisin in the Sun" I said this is the closest I will get to Denzel. I planned a sisters trip and we bought the tickets and I was anxious up to the day to see the play. I traveled from Florida to New Jersey. .then to NYC. The entire cast did not disappoint. The play was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. When the cast stepped forward to bow..the audience gave a standing ovation. When it was Denzel's turn..there was so much screaming. Whistling..loud clapping. .I was so overwhelmed. .I started crying tears of joy..My face was streaming with tears..but I accomplished my dream to see my favorite man in person. And I snapped a great picture of Denzel going into the stage door. I am just so happy. Thanks again Denzel for making this happen. Love you always. . Kim W.

This was our end of the school year celebration (Memphis , TN). Denzel was awesome and should have been a Tony Award nominee. Great play.

The play was OUTSTANDING! I laughed, I cried, I recited some of the lines along with the performers. Denzel was an excellent choice to play Walter Lee and LaTonya Richardson-Jackson was an excellent choice to play Lena. I could not visualize Diahann Carole as Lena, too proper speaking. It's almost like someone reciting "In the Mornin" by Paul Laurence Dunbar who does not possess a down home dialect, Lol. The director, Kenny Leon gave me his autograph and he was EXTREMELY humble and polite as well as Mrs. LaTonya Richardson-Jackson who gave me an autograph the next day when I went back to the theater hoping to get Denzel's autograph, which I'm told he does not sign autographs before the performance. But I got a glimpse of him as he swiftly got out the the car and walked into the open door next to the theater. I LOVED, LOVED the play and Lorraine Hansberry is smiling down on the cast from heaven and saying "Well Done".

This was truly the best show I've been to. Denzel and the rest of the cast was simply electrifying.
