‘Chaplin’ lands at Barrymore

Broadway bio-musical to open in September

Tramp bio-tuner “Chaplin” has lined up its Broadway theater and dates, skedding a Gotham stint that opens in September at the Barrymore Theater.

Formerly titled “Becoming Chaplin,” the musical about the life of silent film star Charlie Chaplin has songs by Christopher Curtis and book by Thomas Meehan (“Hairspray,” “The Producers”). Show world preemed at La Jolla Playhouse in a 2010 staging, when the musical was called “Limelight.”

Warren Carlyle (“Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway”) helms and choreographs the Broadway incarnation after co-directing the La Jolla production. No cast has yet been announced; Rob McClure played the title role in show’s bow.

“Chaplin” is producd by Rich Entertainment Group (led by Bob and Mindy Rich), Roy Gabay (“Fela!”) and John and Claire Caudwell. The Riches and the Caudwells previously worked together on the producing teams of “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Leap of Faith.”

Current tenant of the Barrymore, “Death of a Salesman,” ends its limited run June 2. “Chaplin” begins Broadway previews Aug. 21 ahead of a Sept. 10 opening.
