- The New York Times
Now —some 50 years later— A Raisin in the Sun is every bit as potent, poignant and intrepid in this triumphant revival directed by Phylicia Rashad.
A life insurance policy becomes a catalyst that will forever transform the lives of an African-American family living on the south side of Chicago, as they consider buying a house in Clybourne Park.
Their shared dream of a better life collides with conflicting aspirations, betrayal, and racism.
This classic shines an unflinching spotlight on America's struggle to overcome its past. It pays tribute to those courageous enough to shape a future filled with an abiding faith in the fundamental decency and unlimited capacity of the human spirit.
In her Los Angeles directorial debut, Phylicia Rashad (who won the 2004 Tony Award® for Best Actress for A Raisin in the Sun) brings heart, soul and a flawless cast to a production the L.A. Times says “seems more timely with each passing decade.”
A Raisin in the Sun at the Douglas and the 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park at the Mark Taper Forum are a perfect pairing.

Sunday Afternoon Complimentary Wine Tasting
Come Early. Stay Late! On Sunday, January 29 we invite you to join us in the Lounge for a complimentary Wine Tasting.
The tasting will begin immediately following the 1 PM matinee and continue until shortly before the 6:30 PM evening performance and it is open to all audience members attending the matinee and evening performances on that day. What better way to wrap your weekend?
The Lounge opens one hour before show time, serving drinks and eats from Culver City's culinary stars. Step into the Lounge after the show to hear our resident DJ's spin the coolest grooves and join the cast and crew for cocktails and conversation. When the applause dies down, your night continues at Culver City's hottest late-night spot. Open late nights Fri-Sat.
Note: FREE covered parking at Culver City Hall, after 6pm weeknights, all day weekends. Enter on Duquesne Ave.
