This site was created in the hopes of giving an online home to Kevin Chamberlin fans, as well as to create a means of spreading the word and providing information on this gifted actor.
For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Kevin Chamberlin first achieved national acclaim in Claudia Shear's play about Mae West, Dirty Blonde, where he played Charlie (as well as W.C. Fields and a bevy of other characters. He then went on to become the loveable Horton the Elephant in Seussical.
Though not the world's strongest singer, Kevin was the quintessential Horton, creating a role that will be next to impossible for others to live up to in subsequent tours, regional productions, and so on. He is a large actor, but remains capable of movement and of playing soft-hearted characters, reminiscent of a Jason Alexander. And oh, what an actor!
Kevin is currently appearing as Captain Mike in the off-Broadway City Center's production of Wonder of the World, starring Sarah Jessica Parker. Reviews are mixed. Very mixed. I haven't made it, yet, and likely won't, since I'm out of the City until at least June, and the run is scheduled to end in December. Don't look for an extension on this one.
Other Broadway credits include My Favorite Year, Triumph of Love, and Abe Lincoln in Illinois. His Encores! work includes One Touch of Venus and Ziegfield Follies of 1936. He has also appeared in As Thousands Cheer. Off-Broadway, Kevin has appeared in the workshop version of Stephen Sondheim's Wise Guys, Smoke on the Mountain, Juno, and Neddy. He has worked with Regional Theatres, as well, including McCarter Theater, Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Yale Rep., and Williamstown.
In addition to his numerous Broadway, off-Broadway, and regional theatre credits, Kevin has appeared in such films as Die Hard With a Vengeance, In and Out, Trick, and Herman, USA. He has also appeared in many television shows, namely "Trinity," "New York News," and "Earthly Possessions".
