Grab a seat and get ready, we’re taking you to the theater.  We are previewing the play that changed American theater forever.  A Raisin In the Sun is at Arena Stage and my guest is one of the actors of the production Bueka Uwemdimo, who plays the role of Joseph Asagai.

A Raisin in the Sun is a play by Lorraine Hansberry that debuted on Broadway in 1959. The title comes from the poem “Harlem” (also known as “A Dream Deferred” by Langston Hughes. The story tells of a black family’s experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago‘s Woodlawn neighborhood as they attempt to “better” themselves with an insurance payout following the death of the father.
