"The artistic journey is an ongoing process of discovering who you are, and I'm still searching. You may have been dealt an odd hand, but instead of walking away from the game, keep playing. Magical things can happen." -- CB

Liz Smith raves about Charles in her Variety column

"THERE ARE very few genuine glamorous dynamite '40s/'50s-style ladies left to us these days. But the playwright and actor Charles Busch is one. His "Die Mommie Die!" at New World Stages is a massive tribute to Joan Crawford and Bette Davis and every other actress who ever paused dramatically on the stairs and gave the audience a piercing look. This play includes everything but the kitchen sink; it's lots of fun and the cast enthusiastic. ... When I went backstage, I asked, "Charles, are you going to go straight again and write another comedy for Broadway?" (The story Charles wrote about his own family in "The Allergist's Wife" ran almost two years.) Charles just laughed and then complained about the undergarment he was wearing, a slip that didn't come up to snuff."
