*does a swagged out two step* It’s almost the weekend & I am oh so happy! This past Saturday a belle spent the day out with a sweet friend in the city at 14th Street Playhouse. We had the opportunity to see Lorraine Hansberry‘s  A Raisin in the Sun presented by Kelvin Wade Entertainment. The playhouse is quaint, extremely cozy, & in the heart of gorge Midtown Atlanta.

Wade’s take on this classic play was colorful being that the characters are rockin’ ’70’s clothes though “A Raisin in the Sun” hit Broadway in ’59. The play opened with one of my fave song’s by Donny Hathaway: “Someday We’ll All Be Free!!” When I tell y’all that Wade’s cast is awesome… it’s an understatement.

The 4 main characters, Walter Lee  & Ruth Younger (Masud Olufani, Katherine Nora LeRoy), Beneatha Younger (LuVenia White), & Lena Younger (Eula Berassa) were all funny, moving, & lovely.

I really loved Joseph Asagai (Trivon Howard) & Young Travis (Joshua Montgomery)–they both brought plenty of smiles to my face & giggles. Do you remember when we saw this play here? Olufani was in it & he did a superb job too!

Go.To.14th Street Playhouse. ASAP! This play ends June 2, 2013 & is worth seeing. I always say that it’s great to see plays & take a break from the TV/Movies–especially when the cast is the bomb.com like Wade’s. Fabness at it’s finest, y’all!!!

* Disclosure: We received tickets to see this play. As always… a belle’s opinion is her own!
