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.

Casual but not jeans or shorts
Parking is always difficult at this venue.
Huh? Plenty of free parking right in the Theater Center park

Seats were good, I've been in the front row and now in the back on the balcony, the venue is small so either are good seats. The play itself was not to my liking though I enjoyed the experience.

The play was very funny and slightly disturbing at the same time. Quite a commentary on how human interactions can turn from civility to utter chaos and pettiness in a short period of time. Great acting, as always in a DTC production.

This is a fabulous production. It is well directed and finely executed by the actors. The material is so incredibly disturbing, and the direction, I think, was what made it digestable. The piece itself is provocative, and left me pondering 'how have we come to this'.

Very entertaining. Great ensemble cast. At one point in the performance a prop appeared to have malfunctioned and as the actors became aware of it you could tell they were starting to laugh at the situation and trying not to. They did a good job of recovering and it just made the audience laugh harder. The intimacy of the theater made the whole situation more fun, as if a group of friends were together.
