This one-woman put on such an amazing performance I thought there was a huge cast of characters on the stage with her. Charlayne made smooth transitions from one great story to the next with melodies and songs. The stories, the acting, the excitement...we were so wrapped into this play it seemed like we were watching a movie. Great performance. We'll definitely see it again before she leaves.

Quotes & Highlights
“Ms. Woodard roams the stage like a human searchlight, casting a permanent glow that reaches all the way to the back rows.” —The New York Times
Charlayne Woodard makes the stage her stomping grounds. In this luminous romp, the subject is motherhood. And no matter how many times she says “no,” Woodard’s maternal instincts keep getting called into action.
“Charlayne, go get your baby boy!”
A surprise call from a friend with a last-minute adoption opportunity sends this self-described “blue-collar actor” into a hilarious litany on the joys of children in our lives.
“But if I have a baby, I can’t be the baby!”
Woodard is a storyteller of the highest caliber. In The Night Watcher, as auntie, godmother and best friend to dozens of young people, she shares the battle scars AND the tales of victory.
