Acting Ensemble Presents "By the Way Meet Vera Stark" by Lynn Nottage
In a new comedy from the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright of Ruined, Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. A headstrong African-American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.
