On Friday night, May 30, Mayor Bill De Blasio and his wife First Lady Chirlane McCray saw A Raisin in the Sun and headed backstage at intermission to take photos with the company. Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun is currently playing at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street). Scroll down for a look at the couple with the cast!

Set on Chicago's South Side, A Raisin in the Sun revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis and matriarch Lena, called Mama. When her deceased husband's money comes through, Mama dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama.

The production stars Denzel Washinton as Walter Younger, LaTanya Richardson Jackson as Lena Younger, Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo making her Broadway debut as Ruth Younger, Tony Award winner Anika Noni Roseas Beneatha Younger, Tony Award nominee Stephen McKinley Henderson as Bobo, David Cromer as Karl Lindner, Jason Dirden as George Murchison, Sean Patrick Thomas as Joseph Asagai, and 13-year-old Bryce Clyde Jenkins, also making his Broadway debut, as Travis Younger.
