Wellfleet to Stage CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, Begin. 8/29
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

A little more about Keir and Mia’s upcoming revival of the Tennessee Williams play CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF.

Wellfleet to Stage CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, Begin. 8/29

Real life husband and wife Keir Dullea and Mia Dillon play the classic couple ‘Big Daddy’ and ‘Big Mama’ in Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize Winning play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, opening August 31 at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (WHAT).

Since starring in the classic 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dullea has starred in both films and plays. He’s especially excited to play Big Daddy in this production because he played Brick, Big Daddy’s son, in the 1974 Broadway production with Elizabeth Ashley and Fred Gwynne. “Gwynne was magnificent as Big Daddy,” Dullea says of the man to whom he has dedicated this performance. “He inspired me to want to play that role. His voice rings in my ears today. I’ll be reaching deep to find that voice within myself.”

Mia Dillon won a Tony nomination for her role as ‘Babe’ in the original 1981 Broadway play Crimes of the Heart. She has had a very strong presence in the theater world, starring in such shows as Our Town with Paul Newman, Da and Agnes of God among others. Dillon sees ‘Big Mama’ as deeply in love with her husband and riding an emotional roller coaster from elation as she believes he is cured of cancer, to despair as she discovers he’s dying. Dillon appreciates that the genius of Williams’ poetic writing gives her the chance as an actor “to explore deep emotions in the safe place of the stage.”

Dullea and Dillon have been married 15 years and have enjoyed performing together often. Soon after they met while reading Selected Shorts for NPR, they played together in Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Right after they were married, they toured in Death Trap, in which Keir’s character killed Mia’s off every night. Most recently they both appear in the film Isn’t it Delicious.

Director Elizabeth Falk has also cast newcomers Madeleine Lambert as Maggie and Steven De Marco as Brick. Like Williams, Falk was born in the South, and she is especially sensitive to the musicality of his writing. “Even punctuation is important to capturing the music. It must be honored to get the sound Williams wanted to hear.” Falk has directed 64 productions of drama, musical theatre and opera at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, and Off-Broadway, as well as in many overseas countries. She was the first woman to ever direct at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.

From Wellfleet, this production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof continues on to the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown, for four performances at Town Hall (206 Commercial Street, Provincetown), September 27, 7:30 pm; September 28, 2:00 pm & 8:00 pm; and September 29, 4:00 pm.

Tickets: Premium Seating: $37; Family Circle: $27; Under 18 or with Student ID: $10
Box Office: 508-349-WHAT (9428)

Keir & Gary At The 40th Anniversary Screening of “2001: A Space Odyssey”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

I’m trying to get some of the 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY backlog cleaned up. I know these are from 2008, but I thought they’d be a treat for Keir’s fans and to let you all see some of the people who are still with us who made that amazing film. In some of the photos you can see Keir, Gary Lockwood (Frank Poole), Dan Richter (Moonwatcher) and some of the behind-the-scenes guys like Douglas Trumbull who brought us some of the amazing effects from the film. The event was hosted by actor Tom Hanks and featured NASA Astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

Keir Atwood Dullea – Buck’s County Private High School
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      4 Comments

We finally have a middle name for our guy. Drum rollllllllll….. It’s Keir Atwood Dullea. As if we didn’t already know how cute he is we get a cute, apropos middle name. Here are the scans I was able to get. By the way, I thought I’d let you know, I got the scans off of an Ebay listing. Beware of the listing. With the exception of the images I posted, the listing is asking a whole whack for the book. It’s listed at a whopping $99.99 with shipping free. Nothing gets my goat more than making money off of fans who would likely pay that amount. It’s like those who stake out celebrities and ask for their autographs only to go home and put it up on Ebay for close to the same amount as above. And a word to the wise, don’t post something online you don’t want out there. I have stated that none of the images on this site belong to me. I don’t carp when people take images from the gallery that I’ve provided freely…because none of the images belong to me. As for the ones Emily provided, she actually went to see Keir at the Monsterpalooza event and took the time to take the images herself. I appropriately credited her for her kind donation. More after the cut.



My apologies for not having being around. I’ve been going through some personal things and have had to take a bit of time away from the web. I’ve also had some issues regarding server space and the need to buy another package in order to keep this site on the web. Donations are greatly appreciated. Anything will help. I’m in the process of trying to get back into the swing. I have several images I want to get up in the gallery, namely event images with Keir. I have to tag them. Nothing intrusive, just a little something to let people know where the images came from. Hope you don’t mind?

Keir Dullea Wikia Is Now Closed
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      2 Comments

Due to the proclivity for spammers, I have decided to close the Keir Dullea Wikia. Unfortunately the database is hard to update to more stable versions but that might not solve the spam problem. I’m sorry to both Nichole and Emily who did work on it. Thanks guys for helping. I can achieve the same aims here on the main site with regards to Keir’s film, television and stage work with better control over what appears. There is no way to monitor what goes in there since it is an open source database and open to anyone wishing to add information or spam.
