The Goodman Theatre has canceled tonight’s performance of “Pamplona,” the one-man show starring Stacy Keach as Ernest Hemingway. (Wednesday’s performance had likewise been cancelled.)

Goodman’s ‘Pamplona’ opener halted as star Stacy Keach falls ill

According to Denise Schneider, the theater’s director of communications, Keach, who fell ill midway through Tuesday’s opening night performance, is receiving medical attention after a day of tests on Wednesday, with his wife and daughter at his side.

Audience members holding tickets to tonight’s performance will be contacted by a Goodman Theatre box office representative to reschedule tickets for a future performance, although as of now there is no word about when Keach will return to the stage. Patrons also can call (312) 443-3800 from noon until 5 p.m.

Keach, who will turn 76 on June 2, has no understudy for the show which was crafted specifically for him by writer Jim McGrath, and directed by Robert Falls. “Pamplona” was extended through June 25 even before it opened.
