We Remember Meshach Taylor (1947-2014)

We at the Goodman Theatre were saddened to learn of the death from cancer on June 28 of actor Meshach Taylor.  A much loved and highly respected mainstay of the Chicago theater community in the 1970s, Meshach created indelible performances at a variety of local theaters, among them the original Organic Theatre Company and the Goodman, where his performance in Sizwe Bansi is Dead in the 1977/1978 Season earned him a Jeff Award. His other Goodman appearances included Native Son in 1978 and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1985).
