Charlie Chaplin – “Little Tramp”

-A One Man Musical-

Forty characters. One man. One unforgettable performance.

« Little Tramp- The Musical »  is unique evening of Musical Theater which dramatizes, in song, the fascinating life story of Charlie Chaplin.

An extraordinary and unique One Man Musical show with Music, lyrics, written and performed by multi-million selling Recording Artist, David Pomeranz, in which he portrays more than 40 characters! “Little Tramp” is the life story of cinematic genius, Charlie Chaplin, told through a show-stopping original score that Michael Feinstein calls, “…a knockout!…touching…wonderful!”. In the tradition of the great “tour de force” performances, “Little Tramp” is an evening of inspiration, emotion and celebration you will never forget!

The show opens backstage at the Academy Awards ceremony in 1971 where Chaplin is to receive an honorary Life Achievement Award. Having been falsely accused of being a Communist and banned from re-entry into the United States 20 years earlier, the 82 year old Chaplin is both bitter and afraid as to how he’ll be accepted by the crowd. He struggles with what to say to them when accepting the award ( « Should I weep with delight or should I cry out with rage ? ») Left alone to rest, he falls asleep and as he recounts the events that lead him to this fateful moment, it finally becomes clear what he must do.  

Part Concert ; part Stage Musical, « Little Tramp » is an imaginative, emotional and inspiring journey that leaves the audience walking on air, humming its tunes, and in love with the artistry of the great Chaplin.

“How does one man tell the story of the world’s silent tramp in a ninety minute musical?…with a very clever script and a whole lot of talent. Like Chaplin, Pomeranz’s versatility extends writing, music and acting and the dazzling score has the impressive resemblance of a silent film soundtrack (with songs like) the toe-tapping Number One and the rich, emotional, “Two Many Words”. A captivating testimonial to Chaplin and a superb display of Pomeranz’s theatrical wonder… A Must-See!” . -Adelaide Theater Guide
