Sophie Okonedo added to Denzel Washington play

Oscar nominee Sophie Okonedo is set to make her Broadway debut opposite heavyweights Denzel Washington and Diahann Carroll in the revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s acclaimed play A Raisin In The Sun. The Hotel Rwanda star and Dreamgirls actress Anika Noni Rose will complete the cast of the production, which will open next spring (14) at the Barrymore Theatre, where the original production of A Raisin in the Sun opened 55 years ago.
The play marks Carroll’s return to Broadway after a 30-year absence.
