Chaplin musical heading to Broadway

Limelight: The Story of Charlie Chaplin originated at California’s La Jolla Playhouse in 2010 and now theatre bosses are to revive the show under a new name for a New York run, beginning later this year (12).

Warren Carlyle has been tapped to direct and choreograph the production, which was created by Christopher Curtis.

Becoming Chaplin will follow the star’s life-story but casting has not yet begun.

The screen legend died in 1977.
