The Obamas Meet the Youngers! See the President & First Lady’s Date Night at A Raisin in the Sun
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama with the cast of 'A Raisin in the Sun' in People Magazine.

Denzel Washington and the cast of A Raisin in the Sun had two extra special guests in the audience on April 11: President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama! The first family arrived in New York City in style (in fact, the whole block was closed off for their visit!) then headed to the Ethel Barrymore Theatre to see the beloved drama by Lorraine Hansberry unfold. Set in Chicago (where the President calls home), A Raisin in the Sun chronicles the life of an African-American family in the 1950s struggling to make ends meet. Check out this Hot Shot from People magazine of the whole cast meeting the Obamas, then see them in A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway!
