Theatre Three,

African American Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) pulls the curtain back on old Hollywood in her latest play, a sly satire hailed as “not to be missed” by critics in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. Here’s a play that offers a glimpse into the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African American actress, who begins a career in the 1930s, at a time when her only shot at success lay in stealing small scenes in big Hollywood blockbusters. Seventy years later, film buffs are left to reflect on the life and legacy of this controversial star, whose eventual fame and fortune came at the price of perpetuating dangerous stereotypes. Hilarious and poignant, By the Way, Meet Vera Stark paints a vivid picture of the cultural climate that shaped this screen queen—and wonders who, in another time, she might have been.
