They are more sophisticated there are now two lawyers in the room as Clybourne Park neighbors discuss what sort of renovations can be may be made by Steve and Lindsey (Marker and Oberhauser) when they move to Clybourne Park as one of the few white families and remodel the old home of Russ and Bev. And everyone's a global traveler. The discussion is broken up with comments on the various places they've vacationed and the various types of food they've eaten.
There is nothing frothy about the second half of the first act; in fact it's much closer to rabid than frothy, as neighborhood leader Karl (Craig Marker) visits the sold home with his wife, the deaf and very pregnant Betsy (Kendra Lee Oberhauser), to try to prevent an even unwitting bit of so called "blockbusting" from taking place.

But then it's intermission, we buy some ice cream and talk about what we've just seen. Then we exchange smiles, ready for the second act, set in 2009, a year before the play made its debut.
