My review of the just opened Chaplin: The Musical is up at The Film Experience. If the idea of the show intrigues you, hurry up. It might be closed by the time you're done reading this post.
I could have really hauled off and slammed this show. It would have been justified. Apart from the standout lead performance, Chaplin: The Musical is by-the-numbers too an maddening degree. Utterly forgettable. Yet I picked up on a trace of genuine love for the little tramp. A core of good intentions that made me want to, if not give it a pass, than refrain from beating the stuffing out of it.
Read for yourself.
