Davis (portrayed by Daytime Emmy Award Winner, Darnell Williams) and Ruth (portrayed by Tamara Scott) are two strangers desperate to make a human connection in Sightlines, by Emmy Award nominee Mark Eisman. In this intimate two-person play, Ruth struggles with bitter sense that her life has been little more than a series of betrayals, which has caused her to blur the lines between reality and an unreal, dreamlike sense of self. When she meets Davis, and he extends a helping hand, they smash through an ever-blurring reality into a Lewis Carroll-like world in a love story that defies most conventional preconceptions. This unique production unfolds in an otherworldly set that is a true feast for the senses, accompanied by a haunting original score. Learn More

Goldstar tickets were great, first row center of rear mezzanine . Unfortunately the theatre's air conditioning was on full blast and the whole balcony freezing, so we moved downstairs at intermission. The staging was interesting and the physical comedy and some ensemble numbers great but the script is pedantic, songs unmemorable and English accents terrible (Chaplin was from East London). Great story and a lot of effort put in but wouldn't really recommend it.

Chaplin, the man who changed the way America went to the movies, is now the musical Broadway can't stop talking about!
Featuring a book by three-time Tony Award® winner Thomas Meehan (Hairspray, The Producers, Annie) and Christopher Curtis, music and lyrics by Christopher Curtis, this big musical about the Little Tramp marks the remarkable Broadway debut of Rob McClure as the legendary silent film star, and is choreographed and directed by Warren Carlyle (Follies, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway).
Rob 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. Other selected credits include Avenue Q (1st National Tour, Helen Hayes Nomination), Amadeus (Mozart, Walnut Street Theatre), Little Shop of Horrors (Seymour, The MUNY), The Game’s Afoot (world premiere by Ken Ludwig, Cleveland Playhouse), The Producers (Carmen Ghia, Walnut Street Theatre), The Flea and the Professor (world-premiere, Arden Theatre) and Johnny Baseball (world premiere American Repertory Theater).
