With the rise of e-books, the question of how much longer traditional book publishing can hold out is the timely subject of writer-director Regina Taylor’s new play, stop. reset. At Chicago’s oldest African-American book publishing company, owner Alex Ames goes about the unpleasant task of quizzing his employees to determine who has the skills to keep up with the rapidly changing technology. But it’s when he meets a mysterious young person who appears to have all the answers about the future that he’s forced to decide how far will he go to keep his business.
