A great topic, CHfan! Congrats, in fact I have long been planning to start such a discussion, with reviews and dramatic analysis of the roles he played. If you have any review of any of these stage-works, please share.

My humble contribution-- Chuck playing the 'Black Judge' in Ibsen's 'HEDDA GABLER', a theatrical production of Northwestern University, where he studied drama as a student. Date must be between 1941-43.

Lynn's contemporaries and associates were a who's who of British theater in the second half of the 20th century – Paul Scofield, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen and John Gielgud are just a few. He knew them well and told many revealing stories that he eventually compiled into a one-man show which he performed here and in England. The last professional work he did in London was playing Cardinal Wolsey (in the play "A Man for All Seasons") opposite Charlton Heston.

Today is the birthday of both my daughters, and I remember during their birthday party on 15 February 1988 the local tv news bulletin of Charlton Heston arriving to great cheers at York Theatre, UK, where he was starring in "A Man For All Seasons". The programme for this play is now on sale on ebay.

I was fortunate to see A Man For All Seasons at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle on the same tour. Roy Kinnear sadly died not long afterwards and the bar at the Theatre was renamed Kinnears bar as a tribute-though I think it has since changed its name again.
Needless to say it was a fantastic show and even though I was only 14 at the time the charisma and acting class of Heston was obvious to me.
A few years later Charlton returned to Newcastle in the aforementioned play with his wife but I missed that one.

Unfortunately not, it was the first time I'd seen a play with a major star and I never thought to go to the stage door after the performance.
A few years later Jack Lemmon was in a play at the same theatre with Michael Gambon and this time I did go to the stage door after the show and met both of them. Both very friendly and took time to have a few words with everyone and were happy to sign autographs.
