BAM presents the first New York revival in 50 years of Lorraine Hansberry’s THE SIGN IN SIDNEY BRUSTEIN'S WINDOWOscar Isaac (Sidney Brustein) and Rachel Brosnahan (Iris Brustein) star in Hansberry’s sweeping drama of identity, idealism, and love.

The A Raisin in the Sun playwright invites us into Greenwich Village in the 60s, crafting a razor-sharp portrait of a diverse group of friends whose loudly proclaimed progressive dreams can’t quite match up with reality. At the center are Sidney and Iris Brustein, fighting to see if their marriage—with all its crackling wit, passion, and petty cruelty—will be the final sacrifice to Sidney’s ideals.  Discover the “astonishing force” (The Chicago Tribune) of this stunning drama from one of America’s greatest playwrights when it finally returns to New Yor​k.
