2012 Tony Awards Preview: Best Play

Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park climbs through the looking-glass of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun to see how Americans' attitudes toward race and class have evolved — or not — between 1959 and 2009.

Jon Robin Baitz's Other Desert Cities pivots a daughter's soon-to-be-published memoir against a tragic event in her family's history — one that her parents don't want to revisit.

Rick Elice's Peter and the Starcatcher is a wildly theatrical and innovative retelling of how an orphan boy came to be Peter Pan.

David Ives' Venus in Fur blurs the lines between fantasy and reality at an audition for a play inspired by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's infamous erotic novel.
