Fans are terrified after longtime tv actor falls over on stage suffering a heart attack.
Robert Falls who is the Goodman Theatre artistic director shared the news that actor Stacy Keach suffered a massive heart attack at the opening night of a play at the venue in Chicago. Fox News reported that the May 30 performance of “Pamplona,” with Keach starring as Ernest Hemingway, was canceled halfway through.
Keach was very spaced and confused during the play and that’s when everyone knew that something was going wrong.
Now, the entire play has been cancelled altogether because of Keach’s current health condition. Apparently the 76-year-old actor is going to be released from a Chicago-area hospital on Wednesday, and seems to be recovering since the devastating attack.
Falls who was also the director of the play “Pamplona,” that Teach was starring in says he visited Keach on Tuesday. He shared that each was “in good spirits.” And just like the Keach we all know he was already sitting up in bed studying the script asking “‘when are we rescheduling?’
“On behalf of Stacy Keach, his family and the Goodman, we would like to extend our gratitude for all of the generous support and concern shown to Stacy this past week,” Artistic Director Robert Falls said in a statement. “I remain awed by Stacy’s courage and strength after experiencing such a disturbing event; his spirits are high and he is resting and recovering comfortably. Jim, Stacy and I look forward to continuing our collaboration on Pamplona.”
Although they are happy that Keach is recovering, they are being cautious and plan on giving him plenty of time to recovery before rescheduling. Falls hinted that they are planning on rescheduling the play for next year, and will keep fans updated.
Please keep Keach in your prayers! This must have been so scary!!
