Philip Dawkins’ play at MCC Theater opens September 18.
The New York premiere of Philip Dawkins’ Charm, directed by Will Davis, officially opens September 18 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre Off-Broadway. The play is inspired by the real-life story of Miss Gloria Allen, a black transgender woman who changed the lives of students at Chicago’s LGBTQ community center, Center on Halsted.
The production from MCC Theater began performances August 31 with Sandra Caldwell starring as Mama Darleena Andrews, the character based on Miss Gloria Allen.
