Charlayne Woodard

Featuring Original Music by Darryl Jones

Available April 15-25 Only

Manhattan Theatre Club (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director and Barry Grove, Executive Producer) is pleased to present NEAT as the next offering in MTC's virtual Curtain Call series. Originally produced at MTC in 1997, NEAT is written and performed by Tony Award nominee Charlayne Woodard and will feature original music by acclaimed Rolling Stones bassist Darryl Jones. The production will stream on demand from Thursday, April 15 through Sunday, April 25.

Charlayne Woodard returns to MTC to perform her magical, compelling, and inspiring portrait of a young woman's coming of age, and her realization that some of life's most difficult times can also be the most fulfilling.

As this magnificent storyteller spins her own real-life remembrances of her disabled aunt, Neat, we find ourselves on an excursion from entrenched prejudice in the South to racial violence in the North, with side trips to teenage fashions, hairdos and pop music, family relations, friendship and religion.

Tickets to NEAT are free and can be reserved at www.manhattantheatreclub.com/events/mtc-curtain-call-series

DARRYL JONES (Original Music). Growing up in a musical family on the south side of Chicago and playing alongside diverse world-class artists has provided profound musical insight and inspiration which can only be heard in the music of Darryl Jones. After several years gigging around the Chicago music scene, Darryl's international recording and touring career took flight at age 21, with jazz icon Miles Davis. Gigs with Sting, Herbie Hancock, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Eric Clapton, and others soon followed, and since '93 he's been the bassist for the Rolling Stones. When his schedule permits, he performs with other artists, co-leads a couple of bands, serves the legacy of The Chief with the Miles Electric Band; and in 2017 he debuted The Darryl Jones Project. Besides touring and recording, Darryl keeps busy writing music, including composing the score for an award-winning film. He continues his education and was selected to participate in the Sundance Institute's famed Music & Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Ranch in 2017. He teaches classes and conducts clinics around the world, and in 2014 he founded Jones Musical Instruments to craft custom basses and guitars.
