Video: Playbill.com interviews Rob McClure before opening of Chaplin.
We’re delighted to welcome Rob McClure, the Tony Award-nominated star of Broadway’s Chaplin, for his 92Y debut in this weekend’s Lyrics & Lyricists salute to MGM Musicals, led by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall.
We asked Rob a few questions to get ready for the weekend.
What are your three favorite MGM musicals?
Singin’ in the Rain, Summer Stock, and The Wizard of Oz
If you could work with an MGM star of the past, who would it be?
I had the sublime honor of working with MGM star Eddie Bracken (Summer Stock, etc.) before he passed away. He was the best storyteller I ever met. Another one would be Ray Bolger. He has a sense of play that I admire and strive for.
