Currently in previews at New York's Second Stage Theater, Sanaa Lathan starring in Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Lynn Nottage's new play, By The Way, Meet Vera Stark, as a black maid in Hollywood pursuing her dream of making it in the movies, while also grappling with racial stereotypes through several decades of the 20th century.

Directed by Jo Bonney (The Break of Noon, Fat Pig), the show officially opens on May 9 at Second Stage Theater, off-Broadway, NYC. I plan to see it, and will share my thoughts afterward.

In the meantime, check out these images (above and below) of Lathan in action, on stage, in the play:

    "Being strong can be also feminine. I don't think feminine equals being weak. Being strong is very sexy." - Sanaa Lathan

    Saw the play a few weeks back...it's great and Sanaa does an excellent job!

    Also is Nottage's critique of Hollywood race representation. Very, very clever.
