Charisma Wooten in 'A Night with Jackie 'Moms' Mabley'

Thursday, March 12, 2020

"A Night with Jackie 'Moms' Mabley," is a Helen Hayes-nominated play for the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play written and portrayed by the veteran performing artist Charisma Wooten.

Step back in time with the wonderful mother-wit of Loretta Mary Aiken, better known as Moms Mabley. This one-woman show is filled with one-line zingers about everything from politics to sexuality and racism. You will laugh and cry!  

This veteran actor/singer/playwright has toured throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa. She has performed at many local venues including, among others, the University of Maryland’s Scott Gliner Center for Humor Studies, the historic Karamu Theatre, the Baltimore Museum of Art, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and is currently enjoying a 10-year run at Germano’s Cabaret Theatre. Charisma was nominated by the Washington Area Music Awards for Best Cabaret.
