Charles Sanchez is an openly gay writer/performer living in Manhattan. He started his career as a child in the Phoenix Boys Choir, toured Europe, sang for the president, traveled the country. Then his voice changed and it’s been downhill ever since. His acting career took him from Lincoln Center to Off-Broadway, regional theatre, touring children’s theatre, and finally, a stint at Murry’s Dinner Playhouse in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is ecstatic to be back in New York and is currently writing and producing Manhattan Man Travels on YouTube.
