'60s heartthrob Richard Chamberlain makes rare stage appearance
If you're a television fan of a certain age, you probably have fond memories of actor Richard Chamberlain. He dominated the small screen a few decades back, starting with his portrayal of handsome, earnest young Dr. Kildare in the 1961-66 NBC medical drama and continuing with his work in mini-series such as "Shogun" and "The Thorn Birds."
Chamberlain, now 78 and a longtime Hawaii resident, makes a rare local appearance this month in "The Heiress" at the Pasadena Playhouse. He plays Dr. Austin Sloper, a stern but well-meaning New York physician living in the mid-19th-century whose complicated relationship with his plain daughter, Catherine, leads to tragedy when she becomes the object of a young man's affections.
