Ronald Keaton

The Off-Broadway hit, CHURCHILL, will celebrate its 100th performance tonight, May 4th at New World Stages. CHURCHILL, a new play adapted and performed by Ronald Keaton, opened on February 18th to unanimous rave reviews led by Joan Hamburg of ABC Radio who declared, “Ronald Keaton IS Churchill. Treat yourself to one of the great figures in world history!” Under the direction of Kurt Johns, CHURCHILL is based on the life and writings of one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th Century.

Experience the man who famously proclaimed, "I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter." Winston Churchill made his mark in history as a Nobel Prize winner, respected politician and one of the greatest leaders the world has seen. But in March of 1946, he has just shockingly been defeated for re-election as Prime Minister, is in forced retirement and everything he has fought for is threatening to slip through his fingers. When he receives an invitation from United States President Harry S. Truman to speak in Fulton, Missouri, he rediscovers his strength in a speech that impacts the world forever.

In this highly charged new play, Churchill discusses his failures and his successes; his love of art, liquor and women; and the bravery of Britain's finest hour.
