Praise

Praise for A Raisin in the Sun

“One of the handful of great American plays—it belongs in the inner circle, along with Death of a Salesman, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, and The Glass Menagerie.”—The Washington Post

“The play that changed American theater forever.”—Frank Rich, The New York Times

“A beautiful, lovable play. It is affectionately human, funny and touching….A work of theatrical magic in which the usual barrier between audience and stage disappears.”—John Chapman, New York News

“An honest, intelligible, and moving experience.”—Walter Kerr, New York Herald Tribune

“Miss Hansberry has etched her characters with understanding, and told her story with dramatic impact. She has a keen sense of humor, an ear for accurate speech and compassion for people.”—Robert Coleman, New York Mirror

“It is honest drama, catching up real people….It will make you proud of human beings.”—Frank Aston, New York World-Telegram & Sun

“A wonderfully emotional evening.”—John McClain, New York Journal American
