World Company at the Dolby Theatre on Friday, Jan. 23, in Hollywood.
"It's wonderful, absolutely wonderful. The dancers are terrific, the colors,
the background... it's kind of a window into another culture
that I find very interesting." "It was amazing watching the dancers
appear to leap into the backdrop and fly into the air or dive
into the sea." said Richard Chamberlain after the show!

Richard Chamberlain posing for OUT magazine in New York,
on the occasion of his appearance in the play "Sticks and Bones".
"Though he’d been in a relationship for years, it wasn’t until 2003
that Chamberlain decided to publicly address being gay.
“Remaining in hiding was a totally valuable part of my life,” he says.
“I was a romantic lead in films at a time before some of the new
relaxations and new diminishment of total ignorance. If I were
ever outed, my career — which was my entire life, for the longest time —
wouldn’t have happened. I spent a great deal of my life pretending
to be somebody else.”(OUT.EDITORS.COM)

First Exclusive Interview
On September 7, 2011 Richard Chamberlain granted an exclusive interview
to this "Richard Chamberlain Webbiography". He talked about
his career, his singing, his artwork and his writing,
and peppered his comments with several anecdotes,
some hitherto unpublished.
Reactions to or comments on the interview can be posted
on the "Richard Chamberlain Webbiography" Facebook account.
1. Richard Chamberlain talks about his two
recent high tech and science fiction projects
'Chuck' and 'Leverage'
2. Richard Chamberlain underlines the
importance of all kinds of 'masks' for
an actor: in the 'Man in the Iron Mask'
the iron mask was totally terrifying!
3. Richard Chamberlain reminisces about
'Shogun': 'Shogun' was a wonderful experience,
I was not about to screw it up despite
cultural clashes between the Japanese
and American crew.
4. Richard Chamberlain on 'The Thorn Birds':
chemistry is impossible to define.
5. Richard Chamberlain commends the series
'Brothers & Sisters' for treating gay characters
just like people.
6. Richard Chamberlain: in all my projects
I learn about myself, in comedy I learn
a little more.
7. Richard Chamberlain about his artwork:
sometimes my paintings have a certain meaning
like 'Celestial Ardor' that expresses total
commitment of oneself to life.
For a man total commitment to life
is in part phallic.
