Churchill: Solo Show Captures Famed Prime Minister
$12.50 - $24.50*
$25 - $49
Called "enthralling" and "immensely entertaining" by the Chicago Sun-Times, the hit solo show starring Ronald Keaton returns to Chicago at the Greenhouse Theater. Based on Winston Churchill's own writings, the play finds the former British prime minister chafing under forced retirement after a shocking loss in the post-World War II election. But when President Harry Truman invites him to speak in the U.S., the famed politician, painter, Nobel Prize-winning author and witty raconteur begins to reflect on his life and times with humor, pride and regret. The inspiring leader who led England through one of its most difficult periods not only shares his political and military history, but also his fondness for whiskey, cigars and women. Keaton's been called one of the city's "top-tier theater veterans" by the Chicago Tribune.

Quotes & Highlights
- “It is a triumphant performance (expertly directed by Kurt Johns), capturing the essence of the man without mimicry of any kind. And the actor’s script, based on Churchill’s writings and Dr. James C. Humes’ teleplay ‘Winston Churchill,’ is superbly modulated to capture a multitude of moods and events, and the dramatic ups and downs of a long and remarkable life.”—Chicago Sun-Times (Highly Recommended)
- “Keaton is blessed (and maybe occasionally cursed) with being eminently likable on stage. Thus his Churchill is neither gruff nor imposing, but human. And, in that way, great company for a couple of hours of … theater.”—Chicago Tribune
