Rashad Returns to "A Raisin in the Sun"
Variety.com has announced that Phylicia Rashad will direct a production of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun in Los Angeles. The production is set to open in the summer of 2011 and will be Rashad's third visit with the play in the past few years. Rashad won a 2004 Tony for her portrayal of matriarch Lena Younger in the recent Broadway revival. She then reprised her performance (for which she received a 2008 Emmy nomination) in the TV movie version of the production.
