Play About Monk’s Life on Off-Broadway

Monk, a one-man play chronicling the life of the often-misunderstood pianist Thelonious Monk, is set to appear off-Broadway in New York’s Abington Theatre from March 15 until May 8.

Written by Laurence Holder and performed by Rome Neal, the play started off as an eight-week production at the Nuyorican Poets Café in 2000. Eventually, Monk went on to be performed in venues like the Clef Club in Philadelphia, Pa., Crossroads Regional Theatre in New Brunswick, N.J. and the Artist Collective in Hartford, Conn.
