Final Performance of Broadway's Chaplin Will Benefit Actors Fund
By Andrew Gans
The final performance of the new Broadway musical Chaplin on Jan. 6, 2013, will benefit the Actors Fund, according to a spokesperson for the production.
All proceeds from the 8 PM performance at the Barrymore Theatre will go to the Fund.
Chaplin features music and lyrics by Christopher Curtis and a book by three-time Tony Award winner Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Curtis. Directed by Drama Desk nominee Warren Carlyle (Finian's Rainbow; Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway), the Broadway musical officially opened Sept. 10 following previews that began Aug. 21.
Critically acclaimed Barrymore Award winner Rob McClure stars in the title role.
Special Actors Fund performances, according to the Fund, are "among the most thrilling theatrical experiences and the hottest tickets in town. Broadway companies generously give their time and talent by adding these special shows to their already rigorous schedules, and perform for audiences full of their peers from the entertainment community."
