Remembering Stage and Screen Actor Chuck Patterson

I auditioned for Chuck Patterson at Rosetta LeNoire’s AMAS Theater on 105th St and 5th Ave for a play called Fort E Ville by Gene Allen. Desiree Colman and I waited in the greenroom to audition…He was simultaneously a grassroots icon and a Broadway star we could look up to. He was both accessible and lofty enough to raise a high artistic standard for artists. So talented. Thank you Chuck for your example, you dignity, your passion, your unstoppable excellence! Talented director and performer of stage and screen! You are missed!
