Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park is both an ingenious inversion and sharp-eyed update of A Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry's classic play about race and real estate. In 1959, a white couple sets off a community controversy when they inadvertently sell their bungalow to the area's first black family. Half a century later, roles reverse when a black couple clashes with a white couple who wants to buy and then "gentrify" the same house. The language of this Pulitzer- and Tony-winning play pulls no punches, but the conversation it inspires is worth it. Melissa Foulger directs a powerful new production on the Main Stage of the Aurora Theatre. Learn More
Getting there was a little confusing. The Google Maps said the theater was on the right side of Pike St, so I missed it the first time. It's actually on the left side (going south towards 316). Also, there are signs for the theater posted on Crogan St.The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown travel • Mar 14 2014 star this tip starred

Aurora Theatre's production of The Drowsy Chaperone blew me away. I saw the show on Broadway years ago and liked it fine, but I loved every minute I spent watching these people. I can't praise it enough. I was almost brought to tears at the end because I share the narrator's love of old style musicals and it was clear that the cast does, too.

This was a really fun night at the theater. The story is very light, but the actors did a great job of making their characters believable. Excellent voices and a good job on the dance numbers. Kudos to the orchestra and set design.
This recent Broadway hit pays tribute to the Jazz Age shows of the 1920s that lifted our spirits during the Great Depression. When a die hard musical theatre fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, the musical literally bursts to life in his living room. A brazen Broadway starlet’s wedding day is complicated by a motley crew of zany guests, including a gin-soaked chaperone assigned to keep a watchful eye over the bride.
Winner of 5 Tony® Awards.
