A.C.T. mourns the loss of one of our founding members, Richard Dysart. Hand-picked by William Ball in 1965 to be part of the original acting company at A.C.T. in Pittsburgh, Richard moved to San Francisco in 1967 when the company relocated to The Geary Theater. Here, he performed a staggering number of iconic characters—Willy Loman, Gloucester, Captain Cat, Uncle Vanya, and the father in Six Characters in Search of an Author (the play that first brought him and Bill Ball together)—and directed A.C.T.’s first staging of the Edward Albee classic, The Zoo Story, all in one season! After moving to Los Angeles, he found even greater success on TV and is perhaps best known to audiences as Leland McKenzie in the classic series L.A. Law. Richard was a true actor's actor; we celebrate the life of this incredible talent.
