BIOGRAPHY:

Although Richard Kiley's rich, baritone, and strong vocal talent was much in evidence and received due respect with his award of a Tony for "Man of La Mancha", it was little used in his television and movie appearances. Won two Tony Awards as Best Actor (Musical): in 1959 for "Redhead" and in 1966 for his signature role, "Man of La Mancha". He was also nominated in the same category in 1962 for "No Strings" and, in 1987, as as Best Actor (Play) for a revival of Arthur Miller (I)'s "All My Sons".


TRIVIA:
  • Was the original Don Quixote (as well as Cervantes) in "Man of La Mancha".
  • Attended St. Thomas the Apostle elementary school in Chicago.
  • Won two Tony Awards as Best Actor (Musical): in 1959 for "Redhead" and in 1966 for his signature role, "Man of La Mancha". He was also nominated in the same category in 1962 for "No Strings" and, in 1987, as as Best Actor (Play) for a revival of 'Arthur Miller (I)' (qv)'s "All My Sons".
