Last chance to catch Neat, Charlayne Woodard's autobiographical solo about growing up in a 1960s urban, African-American family. Running to Feb. 1 at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, Neat features Woodard as more than a dozen characters, including her grandmother, middle-class parents and little sister. The show began previews Jan. 4 and opened Jan. 11. Woodard premiered Neat at Manhattan Theatre Club back in Dec. 1996. She's also the author/star of the 1993 solo Pretty Fire, which won Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle and NAACP Theatre Awards. Neat serves as something of a companion piece to the earlier play.

As an actress, Woodard received Tony and Drama Desk nominations for Ain't Misbehavin' and a Drama Desk nomination for Hang On To The Good Times. She's appeared at La Jolla Playhouse, the NY Shakespeare Festival, and in the recent Crucible film (as Tituba).

For tickets ($29-$37) and information on Neat at the Mark Taper Forum, 135 North Grand Avenue, call (213) 628-2772.
