A Singing and Dancing Charlie Headed to Broadway

A musical on Chaplin now heading for Broadway originated a the La Jolla Playhouse as “Limelight.”  I have to admit I was put off by that title as Chaplin’s film of the same name is one about the decline of a clown in late life.  They’ve just announced that a veteran of other musicals, Rob McClure will be playing the title role which he originated at La Jolla.  Here’s a video from that production. (I have to say that it is a bit strange to see an iconic silent character singing and talking!)
