Winner of two 2004 Tony Awards for Featured Actress in a Play (Audra McDonald) and Leading Actress in a Play (Phylicia Rashad). Sean Combs (a.k.a. "P. Diddy"), Audra McDonald and Phylicia Rashad star in the Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry's classic play A Raisin in the Sun. Kenny Leon directs. The play tells the story of three generations of a family living and struggling together under one roof. The Youngers - Mama, her children Beneatha and Walter Lee, and his wife Ruth and their son, Travis - live on Chicago's South Side in the 1950s. It is a place in which dreams, like the raisin in the Langston Hughes' poem from which the play takes its title, wither and die if nothing is done with them. Also the recipient of 2004 Drama Desk Awards for the performances by McDonald and Rashad.
