A revival of the classic play “A Raisin in the Sun” will star Denzel Washington and Diahann Carroll.

The legendary show is being revived for another run on Broadway.

Denzel will reportedly play Walter Younger, and Carroll will play his mother. Other actors rumored to have signed on include Sophie Okenedo and Anika Noni Rose.

From Showbiz 411:

Carroll was last seen on Broadway in “Agnes of God” some thirty years ago– 1983. Before that she starred in Richard Rodgers’ “No String” in 1962-63 and “House of Cards” in the mid 1950s. Of course, she’s never stopped working on TV and in films, from her landmark series “Julia” to “Dynasty” and lots, lots more. She can also sing like a bird, so maybe once “Raisin” gets going she’ll do a night at 54 Below.

This will all be announced officially in good time, but frankly, I can’t wait to see this play.
