A Raisin In The Sun Preview

I spoke with a few of the cast members of A Raisin In The Sun about their experience working with director Liesl Tommy and what it’s like trying to find a fresh and relevant take on such a well-known classic. Fortunately for me, they had a lot of good things to say:

Previews start this Friday, March 8 at the Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre (plus we’ve got a cool little pre-show party with cheap tickets that night if you’re interested)

(also? One of the actresses was totally in Batman Forever! Also The Abyss. But more importantly Batman Forever!)

…Or Does It Explode?

Here’s a little teaser trailer I put together for our upcoming production of A Raisin In The Sun at the Huntington. I didn’t have much to work with in terms of resources or time, so I recorded one of our actors reciting the Langston Hughes poem on which the title is based, and added some shots of Chicago in the ’50s. Still, I’m pretty pleased with the results.
