RON KEATON, SOLO CHICAGO & LIFE IN THE THEATRE - CONVERSATIONS MARCH 23, 2016

The following is the first live recorded program of Conversations with Ed Tracy at the Skokie Theatre. It was a somewhat different format with an opening essay about our plans for the program followed by an introduction of the superb actor, writer, producer and director Ron Keaton.  Ed 3/23/17 

RON KEATON, producer, actor and writer of the acclaimed Churchill one-man show was our first guest for Conversations with Ed Tracy at the Skokie Theatre on March 23, 2016. Ron discussed his long-time acting career, future goals for SoloChicago and performed a monologue from his 2015 Joseph Jefferson Award-winning performance of Churchill.

Ron Keaton on Winston Churchill’s human side:
 
“Most people think of Churchill as the august, bombastic, commanding presence and he was all of that. I wanted a more human side to show. I wanted people to know that he had a family and five children. And that he did worry about his failures. He was just as human as the rest of us.”
 
Ron Keaton on creating a legacy:
 
“I’m at a point in my life where the work I want to do not just as an actor or a person is rapidly becoming legacy… I don’t have children. I don’t have a family like a nuclear unit, so my work personally has to be what I leave behind. Solo Chicago Theatre for me is my idea of leaving something behind for others to enjoy and to learn from and to play with. ... We want SoloChicago Theatre Company to be the brand for solo performance in the United States.”
 
Ron Keaton on aging:
 
“You’re never too old to learn something new, and that’s where I’m at.”
