'Raisin' at Skylight Music Theatre
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.,
'Raisin' will be running April 8-24 at Skylight Music Theatre, 158 N. Broadway Street. Tickets range from $30 to $75.
