What do you get when you take an American theater classic (A Raisin in the Sun) and tie it into the very real, very relevant conversation on race in twenty-first-century America? In the case of Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park, you get THE 2012 Tony Award for best play.
Clybourne Park begins in the same place as Hansberry’s opus—Chicago’s South Side, 1959—and takes on race, rage, and real estate, with the election of Barack Obama serving as a backdrop. Since opening on Broadway in April, Clybourne has garnered, oh, just a small bit of attention: the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play, and most recently, the Tony Award for Best Play.
But don’t just take it from us—see it for yourself. Tomorrow, June 14, we’re giving away three pairs of Clybourne Park tickets to three lucky @NYMag followers on Twitter.
