Part of the uber-talented 2000 revival cast of Godspell that toured the country, Kimball was joined by several now-famous Broadway stars, including Barrett Foa and Leslie Kritzer.
But it was as Milky-White, the beleaguered cow in the 2002 revival of Into the Woods, that Mr. Kimball gained national attention, including being named the "it" cow by Entertainment Weekly.
In between stints in several high profile regional productions, including My Life with Albertine and Baby, Chad returned to Broadway twice, and both times in notorious flops: 2005's Beach Boys musical, Good Vibrations, which he left less than a week after opening to join his next show, 2005's Lennon, where he was one of several actors playing aspects of John Lennon. Say what you want about both shows, at least he didn't give up, and still returns to the New York stage!
Good Vibrations: (If you look closely above, Sebastian Arcelus is center and Chad is in the center of the group to the right, orange pants!)
Lennon: Opening night with co-star Will Chase. Chad sure has worked with some amazing people.
Now, with the success of Memphis, it looks like Mr. November can relax and enjoy many months on Broadway. Trust me. You won't be disappointed with Chad Kimball. Go see Memphis!
