Pulitzer Prize Winner Eyes Broadway Bow

Winners for the 2011 Pulitzer Prizes were announced back in April and, as I reported at the time, the winner in the Drama category was Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park. The board of the Pulitzer Prize has described the play, an update of Lorainne Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, “a powerful work whose memorable characters speak in witty and perceptive ways to America's sometimes toxic struggle with race and class consciousness.”

It now seems that the play is eyeing a transfer from Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum to Broadway in the spring of 2012. No word yet on whether any of the creative team or cast will transfer with the show.
