Kevin Chamberlin

Kevin Chamberlin talks about his role in the Roundabout Theatre revival of Terrence McNally's The Ritz, including whether his "midwestern" looks match up to his character of Gaetano Proclo; how his seasons in the acting company at the McCarter Theatre led to his first New York gig Off-Broadway in Smoke on the Mountain; why the Drama Department's As Thousands Cheer was his happiest time in the theatre ; what his experience was creating the role of Horton in Seussical; how Claudia Shear created a role for him in Dirty Blonde; and why he's skeptical of the workshop process, following stints in William Finn's Muscle and Stephen Sondheim's Wise Guys.
