Name: Keith Herron
What is your current project?
It’s My Divorce – Y’all Come!
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
NY New Works Theatre Festival – This is a total reboot of a solo piece I wrote immediately following my divorce. Now, 8 years later, I finally have enough distance to say something truthful and meaningful – something that speaks to anyone who has every been in a relationship. And I’m writing my own songs!
What’s next for you?
Writing my first musical.
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
Christopher Murray – He seeks clarity in a world full of chaos, uncertainty and spin in order to make the world a measurably better place.
Keith Herron grew up following his parents all around the world. He is an actor, singer, dancer most recently seen on screen in Boardwalk Empire and Mr. Robot. On film, Keith has hunted supernatural evil beings with Corbin Bernsen, lured husbands and fathers away from Jane Adams and Dreama Walker (respectively), and shot a Frenchman at the direction of Jonathan Frakes. On stage, he has embodied Werner Heisenberg in two very different plays: “Copenhagen” and “Farm Hall”; he has danced the dances of Jerry Mitchell and spoken the words of Peter Tolan; and he has performed at St. Clements, Workshop Theater, NY Fringe, Minnesota Opera, Dudley Riggs, Children’s Theatre Company, Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, and the Minnesota Shakespeare Company.
It’s My Divorce – Y’all Come! show was first written as Keith went through his divorce. The show is being directed Anne Pasquale, his wife of 5 years. They have worked on numerous shows in many capacities (acting, writing, directing, producing). Favorite credits include A Doll’s House; Almost, Maine; 12th NIGHTed, Copenhagen, Bob, through our production company, Kandu Productions.
