Denzel dazzles on Broadway

New York, April 4 (Reuters): Denzel Washington may be best known for his film roles, but the award-winning actor is dazzling theatre critics in the Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s acclaimed 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun.

“Heart-stopping,” “a Broadway bulls-eye” and “nothing short of revelatory” are just a few of the accolades used to describe director Kenny Leon’s production.

“It captures the play’s passion, pathos and intelligence, without stinting on Hansberry’s dry humour,” the New York Post said. Hansberry’s story about a struggling African-American family seeking a better life after inheriting a windfall was the first play written by an African-American woman to be produced on Broadway.
