By the Way, Meet Vera Stark is on my short list of must-see plays. Here’s the quick summary: “In the play The New York Times called a “fitful comedy,” Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage takes a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in 1930s’ Hollywood. When headstrong maid and budding actress 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. Seventy years later, film buffs are left to reflect on the life and legacy of this controversial star, whose eventual fame and fortune may have come at the price of perpetuating dangerous stereotypes. By the Way, Meet Vera Stark celebrates and examines the individuals who fuelled the remarkable American cultural changes of the twentieth century.”

A few tips:

  • Weeknights are typically lighter nights at the theatre, so opt for those if you’re taking advantage of rush tickets to improve your odds of snagging orchestra level tickets.
  • The last time we went to The Alliance, we bought our rush tickets as soon as they went on sale & then headed over to Table 1280 at the Woodruff Arts Center for a pre-show dinner. The prices were reasonable (I was surprised, as I expected them to be much higher & I’ve paid much more for the three of us to eat out at a chain), the food was delicious, and Hiron (our waiter) was fantastic.

The Alliance Theatre is located at 1280 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
