The revival of A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry, which is scheduled to open April 3, 2014, will star Oscar winner Denzel Washington as Walter Lee Younger and Tony winner Diahann Carroll as Lena Younger. The play, which focuses on the dreams of a black family in Chicago in the late 1950s- early 1960s, was first produced to acclaim in 1959 with Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee headlining the cast. The 2004 revival starred Sean Combs and Audra McDonald.
