Full Length Musical, Drama, Historic, 19th Century

CHAPLIN is based on the real-life story of Charlie Chaplin, the iconic film actor, writer, producer and director. The new musical spans the comic's entire career, from Chaplin's first performance as a child in 19th-century London to his tearful acceptance of an honorary Academy Award in 1972. The show documents the beloved actor's rise to fame and the people who shaped his life, including his mother Hannah, his older brother Sydney, his fourth wife Oona O'Neill and gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. The musical dramatizes the making of Chaplin's legendary films, including The Kid, The Circus, Modern Times and The Great Dictator as well as his turbulent childhood, frenzied love life and political beliefs. Featuring an original score by Christopher Curtis, including "Look at All the People", "Just Another Day in Hollywood" and "This Man", CHAPLIN tells the touching story of the man who makes the world laugh as his legendary screen persona, the Tramp, but struggles to find happiness in his own life.
