Based on the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry
With a terrific Grammy-winning score that combines jazz, gospel and 70’s pop, this powerful, uplifting musical adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun won the 1974 Tony Award for Best Musical. Set in Chicago in 1951, it follows the struggles of a Chicago family, the first African Americans to buy a house in the all-white neighborhood of Clybourne Park. Ambition nearly rips the family apart as Raisin travels from jubilation to heartbreak to ultimate triumph, while reaching for a piece of the American Dream.
