A Raisin in the Sun is an American story. A story about family, generational change, ambition — and racial discrimination. Chautauqua Theater Company’s production of Lorraine Hansberry’s play represents several firsts. It’s the first time a black female playwright will be produced in Bratton Theater.

How many circus performers can you fit into the Bratton Theater?

Saturday’s opening of The Comedy of Errors was the theatrical equivalent of watching more than 20 clowns, conjurers, strongmen and bearded ladies come scrambling out of a Mini Cooper.

Much of the acting is outstanding, and clever gags — like having a swordfish fight instead of a swordfight — are liberally sprinkled through the show.
