Audible Editor Reviews

A happy, intelligent, artistic African-American girl from upstate New York heads to the Big Apple to make it to the big time in the late 1970s. What could've been easier? In this wonderfully energetic and warmly humorous one-woman show, Charlayne Woodard takes us on a tour of the Lower East Side, doing perfect impressions of her worried mother, her upper-middle-class white boyfriend, a shaman-like Rastafarian, and all the characters she comes to love in the cast of 'Ain't Misbehavin'. The audio's belly-laugh showstopper may be Woodard's innocently sincere rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" as her musical audition piece. Woodard's tremendous talent as a writer and performer are apparent in every second of this live recording.

    "Nana"

    In order to relate to Charlayne Woodard you would have to walk in her shoes. People that are blindsided to this way of life will not enjoy this book. It’s an eye opener.
