Jo Bonney directs the play by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Ruined. The production will officially open May 9.
Nottage "draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood," following "the 70-year journey through the life of Vera Stark (Tony Award nominee Sanaa Lathan, of Raisin in the Sun), a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star (Stephanie J. Block) desperately grasping to hold on to her career."
