Corey Antonio Hawkins will star as Walter Lee Younger in the L.A. Theatre Works presentation of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, at the Skirball Cultural Center, November 17-21. The performances will be recorded for future radio broadcast. Lou Bellamy will direct.

As previously reported, the cast will also feature Judyann Elder, James Gleason, Noah Gray-Cabey, Deidrie Henry, Terrell Tilford, Rutina Wesley, and Mirron Willis.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play is set on the South Side of Chicago in the 1950s, as the Younger family awaits an insurance payout that could make its dreams of a better life come true - but each member of the family has his or her own idea of how to use the money.
