I'm so excited to announce that I'll be in the New York production of AUNT JACK by S.P. Monahan at Theater for the New City

155 First Avenue, New York City

AUNT JACK follows the madcap family of Norman Sable-Church. After breaking up with his boyfriend-since-college, Norman moves clear across the country, leaving his fathers, George (Andrew Dawson) and Jack (Charles Baran), in a tizzy. Months later, with George, a prominent gay activist and historian, in failing health, Norman returns home to make things right and to introduce his parents to his new partner, Andy. Although happy for him at first, Norman's parents are shocked and appalled to find that Andy is not who they wanted for their son. Tension breaks into an intergenerational confrontation about sexuality, identity, and monogamy.

 

AUNT JACK comes to New York after two regional productions-one at Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and the other in the Vermont Pride Theater festival in Randolph, Vermont. Prior to that, the play received a developmental workshop and public reading by Wide Eyed Productions. The New York premiere of AUNT JACK will feature MAC Award-winner Charles Baran in the title role and will also star Shauna Bloom ("The Mentalist"), Jack Bowman (TYRANTS), Andrew Dawson (HIGH NOON), Matthew Menendez (PAGEANT TALES & BEAUTY FAILS), S.P. Monahan (NIBBLER), and Morgan Sullivan (THE SISTERS).

Godfather of Harlem

Godfather of Harlem, written by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein, is an upcoming American crime drama television series that is set to premiere in 2019 on Epix.  It stars Forest Whitaker, Paul Sorvino, Vincent D'Onofrio and Chaz Palminteri.

Charles was cast as the Referee, Joe LoScalzo, in an upcoming episode that reenacts the historic Cassius Clay and Doug Jones fight on March 13, 1963 at Madison Square Garden.
