Congratulations to Chaplin star, Rob McClure, who has received the Clive Barnes Foundation Award in Theater for his outstanding performance as Charlie Chaplin!

We are all excited about Motown the Musical and they have just announced additional casting! The cast is lead by Tony Award® nominee Brandon Victor Dixon (The Color Purple) and Valisia LeKae (The Book of Mormon). View the entire cast here:
