Video - New Musical 'Chaplin' Headed To Broadway
From the slums of London to the heights of Hollywood, Chaplin is the showbiz Broadway musical about the silent film legend the world couldn't stop talking about—Charlie Chaplin.
The brand-new 22-person musical reveals the man behind the legend, the undeniable genius who forever changed the way America went to the movies.
Chaplin features music and lyrics by Christopher Curtis and book by three-time Tony Award® winner Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Christopher Curtis.
Acclaimed director/choreographer Warren Carlyle (Finian's Rainbow, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway) directs and choreographs the production.
And the show stars Rob McClure. McClure originated the role of Chaplin at La Jolla Playhouse (Craig Noel Award winner). Most recently in New York, Rob received raves for another title role, leading the cast of Where's Charley? at Encores. A two-time Barrymore Award winner, Rob starred on Broadway as Princeton/Rod in the Tony Award® winning musical Avenue Q. He made his Broadway debut in the 2002 Broadway revival of I’m Not Rappaport alongside Judd Hirsch and Ben Vereen.
Chaplin opens on Broadway on Monday, September 10, 2012; previews will begin Monday, August 20, 2012. Get tickets today: http://chaplinbroadway.com/tickets/how-to-buy/
