Directed by Jo Bonney, By the Way, Meet Vera Stark is a satiric look at the few opportunities afforded black performers in Hollywood's golden age. This is Nottage's first play to be produced in New York since she won the Pulitzer Prize for Ruined in 2009.
The play opened May 9. This latest extension adds two weeks to the run. By the Way features Stephanie J. Block, Tony Award-nominee Daniel Breaker, Tony Award-nominee David Garrison, Kimberly Hébert Gregory, Kevin Isola, Tony Award nominee Sanaa Lathan, and Tony Award-winner Karen Olivo.
