Broadway said a heartfelt goodbye to the Little Tramp on January 6, when Rob McClure and the cast of the bio-musical Chaplin played their final performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. We went backstage with McClure as he prepared for his last bow in Christopher Curtis and Thomas Meehan’s musical journey through the life of the legendary comic icon. After he put on the signature Chaplin makeup, mustache and bowler, McClure took one last look in the mirror before taking the stage. Broadway.com photographer Bruce Glikas captured this touching Hot Shot of McClure waving goodbye to his Tramp persona. We’ll miss you, Rob!
