Charlie Tingen (TIN-jin) is a thrilling actor and singer — uniquely gifted with the ability to exist in both the old and the new. His artistic pendulum often swings from high-belting, loveably self-absorbed, androgynous roles — to open-hearted roles requiring a nuanced vulnerability and a lush, legit sound. He floats between blowing the audience’s hair back and making them lean forward in their seats.
Charlie has performed Off-Broadway, in national tours, with symphony orchestras, and at opera companies and regional theatres throughout the United States. Recently, Charlie joined the National Tour of Bartlett Sher’s Lincoln Center Theatre production of My Fair Lady as a member of the “Loverly” Quartet and Freddy understudy. Other touring credits include the “Springtime for Hitler” Tenor in The Producers National Tour. [read more...]
