Seth's Broadway Chatterbox: Chaplin Cast Talks Auditions, Sings About Vegetables
Rob McClure, Jenn Colella and Michael McCormick join Seth Rudetsky for his weekly chat show Seth's Broadway Chatterbox, proceeds from which benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS. McClure and Collella dish on the audition process that brought them from La Jolla to Broadway, and McCormick revisits his earliest days onstage with Davy Jones (in his pre-Monkees days) in the touring production of Oliver!, which returned to Broadway near the end of its run. McCormick then impresses the audience at Don't Tell Mama with "Vegetable Reggie," a music hall-style patter song from the 1982 Off-Broadway show Charlotte Sweet.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
