Charise Greene — News

“Inadmissible,” at NYC’s Canal Playhouse

Charise is playing Joanna in the new three-person play by screenwriter D.B. Gilles, “Inadmissible,” at downtown theater Canal Park Playhouse. Joanna is an adjunct lecturer and playwright who offers a fresh young perspective to a corrupt graduate acceptance committee of three. The process, however, changes her deeply, and she in turn irreversibly alters the lives of her mentors in this dynamic play about power.

“Canary,” at New York Theater Workshop

Charise is playing Jo in a reading of Molly Rice’s “Canary” at New York Theater Workshop on May 19 and 20. Jo is described as pretty and does her best to hide it with her crazy “Avant-Garde” getups, made from the artsy detritus of the past three decades, and weird ballpoint tattoos. She has assigned herself the quest of making something New in the world. She is prickly and ridiculous and tough and alone. She has a thick Kentucky accent.

Teaching at NYU & Stella Adler Studio of Acting

In the fall, Charise will join the faculty at NYU. She will be the vocal and dialect coach for all productions at NYU’s Stella Adler Studio, coaching both the NYU students and those attending the conservatory.

Teaching at Barnard & Columbia

This coming Fall at Barnard & Columbia, Charise will be teaching three classes: Advanced Acting, an Audition Course for graduating seniors and Introduction to Acting. She will also be the Senior Acting Thesis Advisor. This past Spring she taught Acting Chekhov.


Charise is writing a short play for Billy & Co., which will be produced in the LITERARY P(ARTS) series the first weekend in June. Billy & Co. is a Williamsburg-based theater company that explores new, creative processes that connect artists with other artists who wouldn’t conventionally cross-collaborate. For tickets, go to Billy & Co.

Tunnels of Love

Charise is currently shooting the film ‘Tunnels of Love‘, directed by Brett Harding, a feature comedy shot entirely in the NYC subway trains and station platforms. The plot centers on couples who get off by making love in public, interspersed with various other character offshoots, examining their relationships to each other and to the transit system.


Charise is now the Resident Voice-Over artist for Turnswing (, providing all commercial voice-over content for the company (visit Media page for Voice-Over example). Charise is also back at Barnard and Columbia as an Adjunct Lecturer teaching Acting to Undergraduates.

@ The Home Of

Welcome to the living room of C and T, a married couple whose relationship is disintegrating. Drama and scheming lead to the entrance of a dancer, Juliet, into their lives. Directed by Kirk Bromley, Leah Schrager, and the performers, this is the first production of Inverse Theater’s 10th anniversary season. Music is by Ivan Khilko, and costumes by Anna Mains. It Was a Setup features Timothy Fannon, Charise Greene, and Lucy Stack. It’s approximately 75 mins long.

Here’s a small chunk of the script:

It starts with a feeling that something isn’t
childhood, which continues to this day,
a sparse sexual settlement of sorts unseen
since it became so hard to say
“Write, rote, rotten.”
There’s nothing wrong with making good money;
it’s just not possible.
The weasel market
won’t allow a free association.
I don’t need
no fucking gym. I am a fucking gym.
