Raisin in the Sun at Chautauqua

2 Jul

I would be remiss if I did not mention the amazing production of A Raisin in the Sun at the Bratton Theater of the Chautauqua Institution. It is simply the best production of this important play that I have ever seen.

Chautauqua audiences give standing ovations easily, but I have never heard the audience react like they did after Sunday’s performance. You could feel the wave of appreciation as people cheered the incredible cast. The performance of Lynda Gravatt as Lena deserves special mention for its power and persuasiveness.

I know a number of Chautauquans read this blog and you must get tickets if you haven’t already done so.
