Chad KimballActor, singer, and entrepreneur, Chad Kimball stretches across many avenues. On Broadway, Chad has starred in Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine’s “Into The Woods” as “Milky White, the Cow,” garnering a spot on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” as one of the “100 Most Creative People in Entertainment.” Other Broadway credits include “Lennon,” “The Civil War,” and “Good Vibrations.” Off-Broadway Chad has been seen in “Godspell,” “My Life with Albertine,” “Batboy,” and “Finian’s Rainbow.” Regionally, Chad has performed in Signature Theatre’s production of “Sweeney Todd” in Arlington, VA, Papermill Playhouse’s “Baby” in Millburn, NJ, and the Blank Theatre’s “Little Fish” in Los Angles, CA.  While in CA, Chad and his brother Todd founded “Obvious Clothing,” (a line I personally am a proud wearer of) an “elegantly edgy”, high end graphic t-shirt line.
