By The Way, Meet Vera Stark
Now on stage - October 28, 2012

Geffen Playhouse
10886 Le Conte Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90024

It's Hollywood's heyday and the streets of Los Angeles are filled with glitz, glamour and the chance at stardom - that is as long as you have the "right" look. But when former maid Vera Stark lands a groundbreaking role in a new Southern epic, she turns Hollywood on its head and paves the way for future generations of black actresses. More than five decades later, Vera's influence on race, film and feminism has seeped its way into pop-culture. But who is the real Vera Stark? Part comedy and part commentary, Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's West Coast premiere uses today's fascination with celebrity and controversy to get to the truth behind the legend.

Critics exclaim Sanaa Lathan as Vera Stark is...

"Sizzling" - Variety

"A captivating central performance." - Los Angeles Times
