The new Clybourne Park Broadway play written by Bruce Norris is turning heads along The Great White Way. The work was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. After a few different staging's a Broadway production are ready for the big stage. Clybourne will play premiers at the Walter Kerr Theatre from March 26, 2012 with an official opening night set for April 19, 2012. The play presents a humorous look at race relations and characteristics within middle-class America past and present.
Bruce Norris' writing of his award-winning Clybourne Park Broadway play is a continuation of Lorraine Hansberry's play A Raisin in the Sun. Hansberry's original play was staged on Broadway on March 11, 1959 for its premiere. The production was considered a high risk for is the study into race relations at the time. The play received mass critical praise, running for two years and considered the best play during that time. "A Raisin In The Sun" was based on fictional events set before and after the play, which were loosely based on real-life events. Bruce Norris response to the epic work and continues the story in an often humorous manner.
In 1959 the house, which is located in a white district at 406 Clybourne St. in Chicago, is sold to an African-American family (the Younger family in A Raisin in the Sun). In 2009 the house now resides in a predominantly African-American community. The story takes the audience on a flipped story as a white family repurchases the home. Norris can create an atmosphere in which to explore the sometimes difficult relationships between race, both in the past and present. The production can create some strained moments, which resolve in Norris' witty humor and provocative storytelling style.
