Description

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_ _JackmanBack 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).
