The Met Opera-bound revival, directed by Robert O’Hara, plays this weekend in Omaha, where the influential Black leader was born Malcolm Little in 1925.
This busy writer-director, known for new works, is now staging ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ at the Public, but it’s more a case of continuing a legacy of Black iconoclasm than a new career phase.
The play is the first to be announced for the Los Angeles company’s 2020-21 season at the Mark Taper Forum.
