When I saw this posted on Talkin' Broadway, I had to post it here. Since I first read it in college, A Raisin in the Sun has been one of my two favorite plays (tied with The Crucible). In many ways, it was if my my family was the Younger family, that I was reading my own life story.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but seeing this preview--complete with all those great Broadway performers--sends chills down my spine. While there have been two versions filmed before, I'm excited that this important work with speak to an entirely new generation of people, and because of Sean Combs, it will reach many millions more than it ever would have otherwise.
