Great play. Strong cast. Saw the first preview... a few technical and staging matters to work out - like the timing of the very last scene - actress was caught rushing on stage to join others. Otherwise... another excellent must see production.

Inspired me to research writer Hansberry and her short life that left several unfinished plays. “A Raisin in The Sun” play at Cal Shakes is highly recommended! Rotimi Agbabiaka a favorite with his acting ability and voice that carries well on...continued

Excellent, and I saw the original Broadway production - also excellent - in 1959.
