Broadway.com gives a thumbs up to Rob McClure's brilliant star turn as Charlie Chaplin.

In the black and white world of the new Broadway musical Chaplin, newcomer Rob McClure provides a burst of color with his funny and moving star turn as silent screen icon Charlie Chaplin. Besides skillfully and expertly embodying Chaplin’s signature character, the Tramp, McClure proves he has the star power to anchor a brand-new Broadway musical with his sharp comic timing, powerful singing voice and nuanced characterization, plus a very credible British accent. From over-the-top physical comedy to smaller moments of despair and romantic yearning, McClure’s Chaplin never strikes an insincere chord. And despite Chaplin’s real-life controversies, McClure’s Chaplin is always a movie star an audience can’t help but adore and root for. McClure is especially captivating when he is alone on stage for his big solos “If I Left London” and “Where Are All the People?,” the latter an old-fashioned 11 o’clock number for the show’s star. Don’t pass up your opportunity to say that you had the privilege of seeing Rob McClure as Charlie Chaplin live onstage at the Barrymore Theatre.
