THE BEST PLAY EVER!!!

Denzel was spectacular in this play! With all the talk of him being too old to play Walter Lee Younger, people must realize that Walter Lee has no age limit. Thank you Denzel Washington for an amazing performance!!!

LORRAINE HANSBERY IS SMILING!

An overall great performance. The cast was exceptional. I knew the work of most of the actors and for some reason seeing them perform live made A Raisin in the Sun their best work yet . I am a huge Denzel fan and I appreciated the fact that he allowed the other actors to shine. The story line applies to any family in present times regardless to race or socio-economic status. What's happens to a dream deferred?

GREAT, BUT......

A fabulous experience. So happy my husband and I got to see this show. I can't get out of my head that Denzel is too old to play Walter Lee.

WE WERE AN AUDIENCE

there was no blackness here,there was no whiteness here. we were a group of americans listening to an american tale that was as old as the country itself. a family wantin it better for the children, but still wantin that little piece of the pie for themselves

YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED !

The cast did an amazing job! Denzel 's performance was outstanding. after seeing the play once before , this time definitely topped the first time. If you buy a ticket you won't be disappointed. It's like seeing him act in a movie but in real life . The other cast members did a great job also. The play is a must see.

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE IN A BRILLIANT BROADWAY PLAY

What a treat it was to see Denzel Washington performing live on stage. I had to pinch myself at the privilege. What was amazing, was that he didn't outshine the other cast members. They were equally as brilliant and made up a powerful broadway ensemble. The story was real, touching and emotionally charged. Instead of it dragging you down and being too heavy, the acting and the humor kept it alive. This was one of the best broadway shows I have seen. If you can get tickets, hurry up, they are selling fast and you'll be sorry if you miss this one.
