The role of Marplot was the COMICALLY BRILLIANT Charles Pasternak... Pasternak’s depth of comedic details—both physical and in delivery—makes one squirm, snicker, and laugh out loud, sometimes simultaneously, if that is even possible.

Following The Winter's Tale, Charles returns to The Clarence Brown Theatre to play Black Stache in Peter and the Starcatcher, adapted for the stage by Rick Elice, directed by Casey Sams.
