North Shore Music Theatre presents LA CAGE AUX FOLLES starring Charles Shaughnessy




Charles Shaughnessy (Georges) is very excited to be returning to North Shore Music Theatre after having "the time of his professional life" playing Henry Higgins to the incomparable Lisa O'Hare's "Eliza" in 2011's production of My Fair Lady. Born to a "showbiz" family in London, Charles tried hard to make an honest career for himself, studying Law at Cambridge University. It didn't last long. After training at the Central School, he worked extensively on stage and TV in England before moving to the US in 1983. Here he is best known for his six years as Maxwell Sheffield on CBS's "The Nanny" and eight years as Shane Donovan on "Days of Our Lives." Patrons of the Pasadena Playhouse might remember him as Laurence Olivier in Orson's Shadow, directed by Damaso Rodriguez. He has enjoyed a long and varied career including an Emmy® for his voice work on the Disney series, "Stanley," and a memorable arc as St. John Powell on AMC's "Mad Men." In his spare time he is passionate about giving every opportunity possible to young people who might otherwise be denied a place at the table, and volunteers with the Family Crisis Center, "1736", in the South Bay and the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation in Boston. Charles has lived in Los Angeles since 1983 and enjoys as much time as he can with his darling wife, Susan and two girls, Jenny and Madelyn.

Our special guest will be Charlie's friend, the very charming, Jack Maxwell.  Jack is the Host of the extremely entertaining, funny and successful show on The Travel Channel, The Booze Traveler!  We are thrilled to have Jack on the show to talk to us all about his new TV show. He just finished his first season of the show and has been picked up for a second season!


Jack travels the globe to not only get a taste of a country’s alcohol, but to quench his curiosity about what people drink, why they drink it and the stories they tell when they do. At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process. If you haven't seen the show, you must check it out the website for #BoozeTraveler or watch some of the episodes online or on The Travel Channel. Check your …

Charles Shaughnessy Blog ~ So this is what I think . . . .21 february, 2012

THE Global struggle is NOT between Christianity and Islam, East .v. West....it is between the extremist and the moderate, the reactionary against the progressive. Look closely at the ideology of Rick Santorum, emergent as the standard bearer of the very vocal reactionary Christian Right, and compare it with the ideology of extremist Islam. Both see Religion as the guiding spirit of society, to the point where legislation itself should be Religion-oriented; not much removed from the vision of a Theocracy. Is there any real material difference between Santorum and the Right's desire to have government illegalize abortion, contraception and many other more subtle rights for women on the one hand, and the tenets of Sharia law that marginalize women in the Islamic culture on the other? Both sides believe in the "sanctity" of life, but will willingly sacrifice it in the name of their Gods. Again, is there really any material difference between shooting a doctor outside his Pla…
