COVERAGE

“[a] resonant revival … taps into the timelessness of the characters, the way their struggles to keep their heads above water echo our own.”Contra Costa Times/San Jose Mercury News

“quite an accomplishment… A magnetic Marcus Henderson is a battlefield of anger, thwarted ambitions and desperate dreams...Nemuna Ceesay lights up the stage… [Director] McGregor takes care to drive home the ambiguous future the Youngers face.”San Francisco Chronicle

“Patricia McGregor’s staging revives [Raisin] with considerable power and nuance… McGregor, who staged a vibrant ‘Spunk’ for Cal Shakes in 2012, delivers a penetrating production, and a powerhouse cast embodies Hansberry’s characters with a fine mix of humor and incendiary heat.”San Francisco Examiner
