REVIEW: ‘By the Way, Meet Vera Stark’ mocks racial identity

REVIEW: ‘By the Way, Meet Vera Stark’ mocks racial identity

Pulitzer-winner Lynn Nottage looks satirically at vintage Hollywood attitudes

BY MICHAEL SOMMERS

OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

Playwright Lynn Nottage won a Pulitzer Prize for her Mother Courage-in-modern-Africa drama “Ruined” and acclaim for other serious-minded works like “Intimate Apparel” and “Mud, River, Stone.”

So it’s a surprise — and a pleasure — to discover the playwright aiming for laughs with her latest play, “By the Way, Meet Vera Stark,” which premiered Monday at Second Stage Theatre.

What’s more, Nottage’s new comedy about 1930s Hollywood not only provokes considerable laughter but also succeeds, for the most part, as a clever study in illusive racial identity.
