*President Obama and the First Lady are set to attend tonight’s 8 p.m. performance of “A Raisin in the Sun” on Broadway.
The Denzel Washington-led revival is at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where the revered 1959 Lorraine Hansberry play first opened more than 50 years ago.
The president is in New York City today on official business. They’ll fly back to DC after taking in the show, according to Deadline.com.
The play —set on Chicago’s South Side, where the Obamas have a home in the upscale Kenwood neighborhood — opened on April 3 to a limited engagement that sees it running to June 15.
