In his big Addams Family production number “The Moon and Me,” Chamberlin works with two other actors to simulate the crazily acrobatic movement of the lower half of Fester’s body.
“I’ve been through [Tony nomination season] twice before: This is my trifecta! I haven’t done a new musical in 10 years, so it’s a whole different animal now. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster and a wild two-year ride. This is a culmination of two years work since we started this show with workshops. It’s really exciting.” —Chamberlin in an interview with Broadway.com, 5/10
