Rob McClure in 'Chaplin'
'Chaplin' will launch a national tour in the fall of 2014.

Chaplin will tightrope its way across America as the new Broadway musical is scheduled to launch a nation tour in the fall of 2014. Plans are also in the works for an international tour of the musical, which depicts the life of beloved film icon Charlie Chaplin. No casting, cities or exact dates have been announced at this time.

From the streets of London to the heights of Hollywood, Chaplin tells the story of the star of legendary films including The Gold Rush, The Kid, The Great Dictator and City Lights. Headlined by Rob McClure in the current Broadway production, Chaplin focuses on the iconic actor, writer and director’s rise to fame and the people who shaped his life, including his mother (Christiane Noll) and beloved wife (Erin Mackey).

Featuring music and lyrics by Christopher Curtis and a book by Curtis and Thomas Meehan, Chaplin is directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle. The Chaplin creative team includes set designer Beowulf Boritt, costume designer Amy Clark and Martin Pakledinaz, lighting designer Ken Billington and sound designers Scott Lehrer and Drew Levy. The musical continues to run at Broadway's Barrymore Theatre.
