The 2012 Tony Award Winner for Best Play on Broadway!
Clybourne Park, written by Bruce Norris, explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
This was pure genius! Hilarious and clever! My sister-friend Deborah and I had the privilege of meeting two of the cast members after the show, the amazing Ms. Crystal A. Dickinson (www.crystaldickinson.com) and the remarkable Mr. Brandon J. Dirden (www.brandondirden.com).
It was interesting to see how the tides had turned!
