Set in Hollywood over a 70-year period, Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's pseudo-biographical comedy By the Way, Meet Vera Stark follows the life of 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 reflect on the life and legacy of the controversial star, whose eventual fame and fortune came at the price of perpetuating dangerous stereotypes. Nottage artfully blends comedy and social commentary for a thoroughly entertaining yet thought-provoking picture of the cultural climate that shaped Vera Stark. Clever and illuminating, this show draws on screwball films of the 1930s and uses today's fascination with celebrity and controversy to get to the truth behind the legend, and reflect on who she might have been if she'd lived in a different time.

Great performance! Ms. Brown is a very talented woman. She convincingly breathes life into a handful of very different characters, and does so with passion! Entertaining, informative, and even (dare I say it?) educational. The actor/friend I went with said this was the best one-person show she has seen in many years. Highly recommend. Bravo!

What I really liked about this event was that it was a great history lesson. I knew most of the characters that were portrayed, but I learned things about each of them that I didn't know. Sandy Brown did a wonderful job engaging the audience as she played each character to perfection. I enjoyed this event immensely.

Great show from a talented and evocative performer. I learned, and wondered and laughed. This is part one of a continuing series, the next installment due about January.

- “Ms. Brown is herself a pioneer of today, forging her own artistic creation ... in a town full of celebrities ... she herself is breaking new ground." —The Examiner
- "I just saw this great performance, Oh, Yes She Did by Sandy Brown, covering important African American women throughout history. It was quite incredible. I've always been an avid supporter of civil rights and this performance has only strengthened my feminist and egalitarian beliefs. I now have a huge list of books to read by Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, and many others. It will probably take me years to read them all, but that's a price I'm all too willing to pay. So I say: "Power to the people!!!" —Feminist Humor Blog
