Chartotte Booker is one of our FAVORITE PEOPLE EVER. And, she’s a wonderful part of The Secret City community. I’m thrilled that she’ll be back in town for this Sunday’s gathering–she’s going to make one of her characteristic community poems, a la an exquisite corpse–based on a question about personal evolution. Join us this Sunday, October 25th, at 11:13am at Dixon Place for a wonderful treat presented by Charlotte and lots of other great folks.

Here’s her bio:

Charlotte Booker is an actress/writer/teacher based in New York City, and has been a Secret City fan for years. She appeared on Broadway in both revivals of Garson Kanin’s BORN YESTERDAY, in 1989 with Madeline Kahn and Ed Asner, and in 2011 with Nina Arianda and Robert Sean Leonard. Other New York credits include TEN CHIMNEYS, DEATHBED, FIVE GENOCIDES, FUGUE, PSYCHO BEACH PARTY, and the title role in BITCH!, which she also wrote. Over the last thirty+ years, her numerous regional roles have ranged from Ophelia in HAMLET to Ann Landers in the solo show LADY WITH ALL THE ANSWERS, at theatres all over the place. She played Honey on the short-lived TV series HI HONEY, I’M HOME, and has made guest appearances on BOARDWALK EMPIRE, LAW AND ORDER CI, THIRD WATCH, NEWSRADIO, MURPHY BROWN, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN, and many others. Charlotte co-created and performed in the long-running comedy show CAUSE CELEB! in New York, exploiting her lifelong obsession with autobiographies and reading out loud. She enjoys volunteering for the Andrew Heiskell branch of the New York Public Library audio books studio as a narrator, and has also adapted books for audio. She has taught and coached actors of all ages, in New York and Los Angeles. Charlotte recently appeared in the short film BRAZZAVILLE TEENAGER, directed by and starring Michael Cera, and in the Coen Brothers film, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS.

Charlotte Booker is the best. She’s a wonderful actress and we’re blessed to have her as part of The Secret City. She’s often done the reading section of the service – either reading something or making something for it. Charlotte’s a writer, too, and often makes these fabulous exquisite corpse pieces, with input from the crowd in response to a prompt related to the theme. I’ve asked her to curate the reading for this Sunday’s service on THE UNKNOWN…who knows what she’ll come up with?!? It will be delicious and charming and deep, I’m sure. Just like Ms. CB herself.
