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 and thought-provoking picture of the cultural climate that shaped Vera Stark. Clever and illuminating, this production draws on screwball films of the 1930s and uses today's fascination with celebrity and controversy to reflect on who Stark might have been if she'd lived in a different time.

I love theatre and really enjoyed this show. Jury was still out during the first two acts, but I was hooked in the third. Story of a really disfunctional family . . . difficult to watch at times, hilarious at others. I attended with two friends, neither of whom is a theatre buff. One found it mildly amusing but weird, the other didn't like it (too much cursing).
If you're a theatre fan, you'll understand why this got a lot of love at the Tonys a few years back. If you're not a fan, you have to keep an open mind.
