Broadway Revival Of A Raisin In The Sun Starring Denzel Washington To Begin Previews This Week

Well would you look at that? Another show that I am looking forward to seeing. No real surprise as Denzel Washington is my favorite actor. Now here he is back on Broadway once again. Not only that but he is starring in one of Broadway's most beloved plays of all time. Now when the show was first announced last year there was understandably a bit of disbelief among the theatre community. Myself included. After all the character of Walter Younger is supposed to be in his mid thirties. Don't get me wrong. I love Denzel but the man is going to be sixty at the end of this year. The truth is you can get  away with it more on stage than on film. Plus he's DENZEL FREAKIN WASHINGTON!

So who cares if he's a little older right? After all theatre has always been about suspending belief anyway. Previews for A Raisin In The Sun are scheduled to begin previews at the Barrymore Theatre on March 8 with opening set for April 3. As of now it is scheduled to run thru June 15. Now in most cases of reviews are good the show will extend. However with star vehicles like that the run is pretty much set in stone before it even begins. Either way I sure don't want to miss it. Get your tickets to see A Raisin In The Sun starring Denzel Washington at the Barrymore Theatre on Broadway. Until next time theatre fans.
