Denzel Washington Headed Back To Broadway!!

Submitted by on August 2, 2013 – 8:13 amNo Comment

I’m not a big fan of Broadway plays, but I will be next year when Denzel Washington takes on the role of Walter Lee in the Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic A Raisin In The Sun!!

Along with Denzel, the play will feature Sophie Okonedo as his wife Ruth, Anika Noni Rose in the role of his sister Beneatha, and the legendary Diahann Carroll as the family matriarch, Lena.

According to Deadline, the revival will open April 3, 2014 at the Barrymore Theatre where the original production opened 55 years ago. Unfortunately for a lover of all things Denzel like myself, the play will only run for 14 weeks…but guess who’ll be in the audience every night of those 14 weeks?? Raises hand.
