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.

Having seen the original production, I found this one to be rather disappointing. There was certainly talent in the cast (the young women playing Emma was a wonderful singer) but it felt badly directed to me and there were way too many people on stage during the big group numbers. Although the actor playing Jekyll/Hyde obviously put a lot of passion and heart into the role, his Jekyll was way too awkward and he lacked any chemistry with his fiance, Emma. He was more convincing as Hyde, but again lacked the sexual ferocity that the role needs to have.
I left feeling a bit baffled that the director obviously had overlooked rather major details and yet still left humming the music.

Just amazing. The leads were all so talented, we were really blown away. Such a big production in such a small space, too. I'm so glad we saw this and found out about this group. Thanks again, GS!

I read other reviews that the show and venue was really good, and I have to agree. I loved the show. The cast and production was very professional, and so talented! I was extremely impressed with the quality of the production for the size of the venue which was small and intimate. The staff that worked at the show were incredibly kind, polite, and helpful! Will definitely go back!
More Information About Jekyll & Hyde
An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
