The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window
Oscar Isaac (Scenes From a Marriage, Hamlet, Star Wars) makes his Broadway debut alongside Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Dead for a Dollar, Othello) in Lorraine Hansberry’s (A Raisin in the Sun) sweeping drama of identity, idealism, and love. Direct from its sold-out run at BAM, Anne Kauffman’s production comes to Broadway for a strictly limited engagement.
Hansberry invites us into Greenwich Village in the ’60s, crafting a razor-sharp portrait of a diverse group of friends whose progressive dreams can’t quite match reality. At the center are Sidney and Iris Brustein, fighting to see if their marriage—with all its crackling wit, passion, and petty cruelty—can survive Sidney’s ideals.
Decades after her death, “Lorraine Hansberry’s play remains a powerful call to action. This imaginatively staged, passionately acted production does justice to her political vision” (Entertainment Weekly). Discover this “astonishing force” (The Chicago Tribune) from one of America’s greatest playwrights when it finally returns to Broadway for the first time in more than 50 years.
