All about the Raisin


Diddy just had to leave his mark one of my favorite plays adapted into a movie didn't he?

Ok, I take that back. For right now that is...

In case you didn't know, A Raisin in the Sun is one of my favorite plays later adapted into a film. Think about it. The late playwright, Lorraine Hansberry, an African American, was the first to have her play debut on broadway let alone have it transform into a monumental film which is still highly regarded as a groundbreaking masterpiece in the theatre circuit to this day.

Febuary 25th is the day where Mr. Combs's acting skills will be put to the test. I wonder will he bring to life the character of Walter Lee Younger just as well as Sidney Poitier did in the 1959 play and 1961 film, or will his acting debut/performance lead to another blog entry... one of dissappointment
