Theater is unique in its ability to bring us together, to remind us of what really matters. We believe it is more important than ever to continue telling stories that make you feel more, think harder and laugh louder — stories you won’t see anywhere else.
Because your health and safety is our top priority, we reimagined our 2020-21 season with an inspiring and flexible virtual season that’s just right for right now when we all need it most.
We can’t wait until we can safely see you in the lobby after a great show and hand you our signature chocolate!
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these challenging times. Stay healthy!

By Charlayne Woodard

Based in the oral traditions of the African Diaspora, award-winning playwright Charlayne Woodard is a modern-day griot. NEAT is the story of Woodard’s beloved Aunt Beneatha (Neat). As an infant, Neat is denied treatment at the local “white” hospital, resulting in her permanent brain damage. With her enormous love, Neat teaches Charlayne to cherish life through the turbulent 1960s and 70s.
Back by popular demand, Marti Gobel reprises her 2012 tour-de-force role.
