PlayMakers Repertory Company should be commended for pulling off this feat. It’s a brilliant move on the artistic staff’s part to rep these two shows. If you’re an audience member who likes to feel involved in the show they’re watching, then this double-header is for you. The cohesiveness of the casts and the range of their abilities is draw enough to buy a ticket.
PlayMakers Repertory Company, the University of North Carolina’s professional-theater-in-residence, will ring in the New Year — and help celebrate Black History Month in February — with an invigorating twin bill of “A Raisin in the Sun” (1959) by Lorraine Hansberry and “Clybourne Park” (2010) by Bruce Norris, performed in rotating repertory, on Tuesdays-Sundays, Jan. 26-March 3.
