After studying under the tutelage of New York Times Bestselling Author and creator of Shondaland, Shonda Rhimes, I have learned the importance of converting books to scripts. Fun Fact: Did you know that 85% of the content seen on television, in movie theaters, and on stages across the globe is adapted from books?
Since 2011, Charron Monaye has been adapting books to screenplays or scripts for authors, including herself. Her first adaptation was with her book, My Side of The Story, in September 2012. The theatrical production Living Your Life premiered in Philadelphia, PA, then showcased in the Black Theater Festival in Washington D.C., which starred Tyler Perry actress D’atra Hicks. Since then, Charron Monaye has been hired to adapt books into scripts for authors such as Christopher Hopson, Nicole Milner, Rhonda Lawson, Deborah Rose, and Stacy Minor. In addition, Monaye produced and/or directed some of these productions. Most recently, Charron premiered her theatrical production, Get Out of Your Own Way, in Hollywood, CA, and Times Square, NY. Get Out of Your Own Way is Charron Monaye’s most successful play to date, with sold-out audiences and encore showings annually.
