Lydia R. Diamond's Smart People celebrated its opening night at Second Stage Theatre on February 11.

Directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun), Smart People is described as follows: "The quest for love, achievement and identity is universal, but what role does race play in the story of our lives? On the eve of Obama's first election, four Harvard intellectuals find themselves entangled in a complex web of social and sexual politics in this provocative and funny new play by Lydia R. Diamond."

The cast is made up of Mahershala Ali (House of Cards), Joshua Jackson (The Affair), Anne Son (My Generation), and Tessa Thompson (Creed). Check out TheaterMania's photos in the gallery below.
