Biography

Stacy Keach has played to grand success a constellation of the classic and contemporary stages greatest roles, and he is considered a pre-eminent American interpreter of Shakespeare. His SRO run as King Lear at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. received the best reviews any national leader has earned in that town for decades. Peter Marks of the Washington Post called Mr. Keachs Lear magnificent. He recently accepted his third prestigious Helen Hayes Award for Leading Actor in 2010 for his stellar performance. His next stage appearance premiering January 13, 2011 at the Lincoln Center in New York is Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz and teaming him with Stockard Channing, Linda Lavin and Elizabeth Marvel. His latest television series, Lights Out (2011), on the FX network is a major new mid-season dramatic show, taking him back to the world of boxing which has been a rich setting for him before, notably in Hustons Fat City (1972) which ignited Keachs career as a film star. Versatility embodies the essence of Stacy Keachs career in film and television as well as on stage. The range of his roles is remarkable. His recent performance in Oliver Stones W prompted fellow actor Alec Baldwin to blog an impromptu review matching Hustons amazement at Keachs power.
