Diddy's Broadway Debut A Financial Success

Rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS' Broadway performance in RAISIN IN THE SUN has already become a financial success - with advance ticket sales already exceeding $2.5 million (GBP1.3 million).

Combs stars opposite SANAA LATHAN, PHYLICIA RASHAD and AUDRA McDONALD in the production, where he plays WALTER LEE YOUNGER, a character which SIDNEY POITIER portrayed in the original 1950s version of the play.

Combs says, "Doing this play has been a life-changing and humbling experience. It has also been the hardest thing I've ever done, but with everyone's support I've been able to meet the challenge and I am grateful to everyone for that."

The play runs until 11 July (04).
