A Raisin In The Sun Tickets

A Raisin in the Sun has had a great impact on the theater goers as it presents a true picture of the African-American experiences. Thus making the audiences walk away with a totally changed notion of it. According to The New York Times the play “changed American theater forever”. On the other hand, the New York Drama Critics Circle called it the best play of 1959, the year its first Broadway production hit the theaters. With Southside, Chicago in the backdrop, A Raisin in the Sun has been written by Lorraine Hansberry and produced by Philip Rose and David J. Cogan. It premiered at Ethel Barrymore Theatre meeting with positive reviews. Consequently fetching four Tony Award nominations. It reflects Lorraine’s incisive take on the desperate attempts of African-Americans to be accepted by the whites. The play throws light on the trying times faced by the African-Americans and certainly helps the audiences come face to face with reality. Watch the experiences come to life by grabbing A Raisin in the Sun tickets.

The title has been taken from Langston Hughes’ poem called Harlem. The opening lines "What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?" indeed set the mood of the play giving a hint of what lies next. There is a lot more to it than meets the eye. It is not only the acceptance of a race but the internal conflicts and the financial crisis faced by the family led by a widow, Lena Younger. Other members include Walter Lee Younger (Lena’s son), Ruth Younger (Walter’s wife), Beneatha Younger (Lena’s daughter) and Travis Younger (Walter’s son). The play brings to the fore true events taken from the writer’s own life. Today her recollection of bitter sweet memories has become one of the greatest plays in the history of theater. In A Raisin in the Sun Lena leaves Southside in hopes of having a better future for her family. But turns out they are confronted by one ordeal after another.

Lena looks forward to the 10,000 dollar life insurance check while Walter plans on spending this money on the liquor store which is clearly a risky investment. Whereas Beneatha who has plans of attending a medical school is hoping that the money from the insurance will prove to be a helping hand in her life too. To find out how the family gets past the hurdles purchase A Raisin in the Sun tickets. Since the play has been a gigantic hit there have been other versions of it that have come up in the past.
