“A Raisin in the Sun”

We saw A Raisin in the Sun at the Barrymore Theatre on Saturday and enjoyed the play. The theatrs was very charming and quaint. It seems that every seat in the theatre was a good seat.

“Raisin in the Sun with Denzel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great experience here. The play was great. Theatre was quite small and doesnt have a lobby. But seating is good and acoustics are great. Magic Johnson was in the theatre that night and we had a great time. Would def come back to this theatre again.

“Can I see it one more time, please???”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

I had bought the ticket for A Raisin in the Sun just few months before going to NYC. And thanks Lord I did it:) The tickets were sold out at the show day. The theatre is quite small ( compering to those I have gone to in Poland) There is no foyer only the seatings just behind the doors. But the place is amazing. I had the forth row left Orchestra. I could see everything well, but I think the middle seats are better:) Nevertheless, it was one, amazing experience. All the actors did their best. Denzel was just the cherry on the cake. I was so, so happy to be part of this show. I have never been to a play written by Afro- American and it was something special for me. To see, think, and react upon the play. I had also great pleasure looking at other people in the theatre. When the play finished there was standing ovation, cheerings and clappings. It was something...

This play was wonderful with the cast of so many talented actor's. My G-kids enjoyed their first experience viewing a play.
The Theatre has perfect seating no matter where. We had seats fifth row left Orchestra. My G-kids found their way through the theatre easily.

“A raisin in the sun - Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

What a show, fantastic play. Wouldn't hesitate to a second viewing, mixes comedy and a good plot delivery what is a great show. Denzel will of course steal the headlines but the whole cast makes the experience what it is.
