Free Tickets for Broadway’s ‘Chaplin’: The CFR Challenge Returns!


Update: We have a winner! Bradley Troll, dust off your bowler hat (and let us know how you like it).-CFR Staff

The CFR is feeling like a little tramp as we present the Clyde Fitch Challenge for November! The prize: two free tickets to the hit Broadway musical Chaplin.

Story continues below.

With music and lyrics by acclaimed songwriter Christopher Curtis, a co-written book by Curtis and the many-Tony-honored Thomas Meehan (The Producers, Hairspray, Annie) and direction by Warren Carlyle (Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway, Finian’s Rainbow), Chaplin pays tribute to perhaps the finest 20th century comedian of all. Portrayed by a wildly gifted Broadway newcomer, Rob McClure, Chaplin is a bio-pic and a time-warp, an homage and a hoot for hilarity, a fond look back at the improbably epic, rags-to-riches life of a singular man who was beloved by millions as The Little Tramp — amid the reckless Hollywood world that grew up and grew rich right alongside him.

Chaplin is performing at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 W. 47th St.) and it is a hot ticket (prices run from $49 to $135.50). Through this month’s CFR challenge, you can win a pair of tickets to Chaplin and they will be free.

Here’s a free ad for the show — well, anyway, a commercial:

And now, here is the CFR challenge. It has two parts.

1) Here’s the question you need to answer:

[ What did Charlie Chaplin do-anew-in 1967 for a film from 1928? ]

2) If you haven’t already, “like” the CFR on Facebook, and private message us your answer. The 14th person to private message the correct answer to the question wins the tickets.

A clue to the answer will be in one of the hyperlinks in the second paragraph of this post.

The winner will receive a voucher from the producers of Chapin good for two tickets to any of the following six performances:

Sunday, November 18, 3pm
Tuesday, November 27, 7pm
Wednesday, November 28, 2pm
Wednesday, November 28, 7:30pm
Thursday, November 29, 7pm
Friday, November 30, 8pm

Remember, the CFR Challenge begins on Fri., Nov. 16 at 1pm. Good luck!
