If you didn't catch "By the Way Meet Vera Stark,"earlier this year during its off-Broadway run, you might get a chance to see it revived on Broadway. Sources say the the production has been optioned and is currently seeking investors. Attention Beyonce, Jada, Jill, even Oprah—this is your chance to bring this play to life!
The story takes you through at least four time periods (specifically, 70-years) via fictional character Vera Stark, a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career. When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.
