Paul Brown: The Father of Football

The Packers wouldn’t be The Packers if it weren’t for Vince Lombardi, but football wouldn’t be football as we know it if it weren’t for Cleveland’s own Paul Brown. In fact, Lombardi might not be Lombardi if it weren’t for Brown! (More on that later.) From training techniques, to the invention of new equipment, to advances in equality on the field and off, our own Cleveland Browns namesake was, as coach Bill Walsh once said, “the father of the modern game of football.”

Paul Brown was born in 1908 and raised in Massillon, Ohio.... more

How a Leader is Made

CPH Alum in Lead in Broadway musical CHAPLIN

August 31, 2012 by Lisa Craig, Public Relations Manager in Where Are They Now?

CPH Alum in Lead in Broadway musical CHAPLIN

Actor Rob McClure – who knocked it out of the park in our world premiere of Ken Ludwig’s THE GAME’S AFOOT, OR HOLMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS – is playing Charlie Chaplin in the new Broadway musical. Performances of the new show at the Barrymore Theatre began on August 21 and the production officially opens on September 10.

A recent article in the New York Times was a great close-up on him and his new role.

We wish him all the best – his performance was the perfect  blend of comedy and drama in our world premiere production last season, and we know he’ll be a star in CHAPLIN.
