Veteran Chicago actor Ronald Keaton is on a roll. His one man show, “Churchill,” which last season enjoyed a hugely successful run at the Greenhouse Theatre here — and subsequently moved to New York, where it opened Feb. 18 at off Broadway’s New World Stages, 350 W. 50th St., has been extended through July 12.
A joint production of the Greenhouse Theater Center, SoloChicago, and the Wendy and William Spatz Charitable Foundation (with the support and permission of The Churchill Centre), the show, directed by Kurt Johns, has garnered many excellent reviews. For those who missed the Chicago run, and plan to be in New York in t e coming months, tickets ($65) are available at Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.)
According to a Wall Street Journal review of the show, which is based on the life and writings of the man who led Great Britain and the Allies to victory over Nazi Germany, “Fifty years after his death, Winston Churchill has emerged as a star!”
