Early lifeEdit

Chanler-Berat was born the youngest of three boys, in West Nyack, Rockland County, New York, the son of Shelley Chanler and Bert Berat.[1]



Chanler-Berat made his Off-Broadway debut in the 2008 musical Next to Normal (originally stylized as next to normal), which later transferred to Broadway in 2009. Chanler-Berat stayed with the show from its original production at Second Stage Theatre to its closing night on Broadway exactly three years later, being the only cast member to have done so.[2]

Following Next to Normal's closing, Chanler-Berat was cast in the role of Boy (Peter) in the Off-Broadway play Peter and the Starcatcher, based on the book of the same name. The show transferred to Broadway in early 2012, and Chanler-Berat remained with the production until its closing during the January of the next year.

After Peter and the Starcatcher, Chanler-Berat participated in a number of Regional and Off-Broadway productions, including The Fortress of Solitude as Dylan Ebdus, Sunday in the Park with George as Georges Seurat, and Amélie as Nino, the latter of which transferred to Broadway in 2017.[3]

Film and televisionEdit

In addition to his theatre work, Chanler-Berat has appeared in a number of supporting roles in television and film, beginning with an episode of Law and Order in 2006. Possibly his most notable on screen role is that of Viggo in Delivery Man, a 2013 movie starring Vince Vaughn.
