Theater producer Elizabeth I. McCann has acquired the rights to the Lynn Nottage Off -Broadway play By The Way, Meet Vera Stark.

The satire, starring Sanaa Lathan, tells the journey of a black maid and actress in Hollywood's "Golden Age" and her relationship with her white employer who is also an actress. Conflict arises when both land roles in the same Southern production.

Producer McCann is reportedly contacting investors and hoping to bring it to Broadway in 2012.
