We received a brilliant review from Evans Donnell at ArtsNash.com for Clybourne Park. Follow the link below for the entire review. Meanwhile, here's our favorite part from Mr. Donnell...
There is no doubt that Clybourne Park is a brilliant play. What brings that brilliance to life, though, is the abundance of talent on and off the Johnson Theater stage that Nashville Repertory Theatre provides.
Play Synopsis: Picking up where Lorraine Hansberry left us in A Raisin in the Sun, a white community in 1950s Chicago splinters over the black family about to move in. Fast-forward to our present day, and the same house represents very different demographics. Jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold as two vastly different generations of characters tip-toe the delicate dance of social politics, pitting race against real estate at the crux of two seminal events. These hilarious and horrifying neighbors pitch a battle over territory and legacy that reveals how far our ideas about race and gentrification have evolved... or have they?
Nashville Repertory Theatre's production of Clybourne Park runs from September 8 - 22, 2012 with preview performances September 6 & 7, 2012.
