By the Way, Meet Vera Stark @ Goodman Theatre- **Payment Due March 22**

 

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 Vogue.

This “sharp-toothed comedy” (The Wall Street Journal) 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 mysterious screen queen—and wonders who, in another time, she might have been.

*Post-discussion immediately following performance.

    I'm really looking forward to this play and I'm also looking forward to meeting everyone. :-)

    Tickets were sold on a first come first served basis and since there were only 10, they went quickly. However, I can inquire with the theatre if we can get more tickets. Please understand that even with those, nothing guarantees your spot except payment. So...if they give us more (which shouldn't be a problem), I recommend that you purchase your tickets ASAP. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at [masked]
