Charlie Pollock is known for his roles on Broadway in Urinetown9 to 5 the MusicalI Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change; Love’s Labours Lost; and Violet with Sutton Foster.  He’s also been getting a new audience as Detective Giffords on “The Good Wife” (in the show-within-a-show “Darkness at Noon”), and has been seen on many stages and screens around the country, most recently starring in Elmer Gantry at the Signature Theater in Washington, DC.

Charlie and his dancer-cum-realtor wife Vanessa Pollock are also founding members of Midtown Direct Rep, the local theater company where Maplewood and South Orange Broadway folks get to “play” in their own backyard.

Now Charlie is coming to Maplewood.

Pollock will be performing live on December 19 at The Woodland in a Holiday Concert to benefit the Achieve Foundation. Proceeds will directly benefit children in the South Orange-Maplewood School District who need access to musical instruments and music education and enrichment.

“We are really excited to be starting this initiative with ACHIEVE and think it could have a real impact with budding musicians in our school district who don’t have access to instruments,” said Vanessa who is sponsoring the event through Vanessa Pollock Team/Keller Williams Mid-Town Direct.

Charlie’s band for the event will include a lead guitarist who toured with Sarah Barrelis and a bass player who plays with Emmylou Harris. Some more “big names” may be confirmed for the event in the next week. Stay tuned!
