About the Show

Chaplin is a musical based on the life of Charlie Chaplin with music and lyrics by Christopher Curtis and a book by Curtis and Thomas Meehan. Nearly a century ago, Chaplin arrived in Hollywood. Within eight years he had become the most famous man in the world, as well as one of the richest, having produced, directed, written and starred in his first feature-length film.

Chaplin was first produced as Limelight in 2010 and then as Chaplin on Broadway in 2012. In 2013 it received nominations for the Tony Awards, Drama Desk, Drama League and the Outer Critics Circle Award.
