Stephen Hanks' Cabaret All-Stars Fight Cancer In Memory of Charlotte Patton at Hidden CabaretCharlotte Patton (right) was not only an entertaining and engaging performer, she was a popular presence in the New York Cabaret community; a ubiquitous and cheerful bundle of energy at various cabaret rooms and a fervent supporter of her fellow performers.

"We were only friends for the last five years of her life, but it felt like we had been buddies forever," says Stephen Hanks, who was Patton's publicist for her last cabaret show, Celebrating Men (Bless Their Hearts). "I will always remember her beauty, her warmth, her grace, her style, her humor, and her incredible talent. And I'll never forget the unbelievable bravery she exhibited over the last two years while battling the cancer that was ravaging her body. But it never diminished her optimistic soul. The way Charlotte handled her illness was truly inspiring. She performed in a show at Urban Stages just a month before she died and four days before she left us, she was telling me about her ideas for her next cabaret show, Accidental Goddess. I really wanted to promote that one."
