HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

JKTS Contest: win Tickets to CHAPLIN

The man, even today, is an icon of the film industry.  And now he's a part Broadway history.

“ENCHANTING! When Rob McClure transforms himself into Chaplin's Little Tramp, it's a dizzying, multilevel metamorphosis." – Brantley, The New York Times

“REMARKABLE! Rob McClure is BRILLIANT” – New York Magazine

 “A THOUGHTFUL and TOUCHING musical that WINS OUR HEARTS!”– NY1

“WELL, HELLO, ROB MCCLURE! Welcome to the show that’s going to make you a Broadway star!” - Newsday

Chaplin, the man who changed the way America went to the movies, is now the musical Broadway can't stop talking about!

CHAPLIN features a book by three-time Tony Award® winner Thomas Meehan (Hairspray, The Producers, Annie) and Christopher Curtis, and music and lyrics by Christopher Curtis.

This big musical about the little tramp marks the remarkable Broadway turn of Rob McClure as the legendary silent film star, and is choreographed and directed by Warren Carlyle (Follies, Hugh Jackman - Back on Broadway). Join us as America falls in love with Chaplin all over again.
