A long while ago, when dinosaurs still walked the earth and no one had Wifi, Charley discovered the theatre. It felt as though he had found home.
So he ran off and joined the circus. Over time, he saw the world—New York and London, Australia and Cincinnati—playing roles in wonderful plays by wonderful playwrights: Ibsen and Chekhov, Albee and Kushner and Sarah Ruhl. Along the way, he was especially grateful for the chance to do Shakespeare: He has played Romeo and Mercutio (not at the same time), Petruchio and Pericles, Banquo, Benedict, Brutus, Iago, and Hamlet
