520 |a Actor, stage director, and theater chief executive John Beasley was born on June 26, 1943 in North Omaha, Nebraska. Beasley attended the University of Omaha from 1964 to 1968, then moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After starting in the mailroom of WFIL-TV, he became assistant producer for a local children's program, The World Around Us. A small part in Germantown Theatre's production of As You Like It initiated Beasley's passion for acting. He was cast in August Wilson's early Goodman Theatre productions in Chicago while working as a Union Pacific Railroad clerk. Deciding to pursue acting full-time, Beasley appeared alongside Oprah Winfrey in the short lived television series Brewster Place, and his career took off from there. Beasley's other film and television credits include The Apostle, Rudy, The General's Daughter and Everwood. In his hometown of Omaha, Beasley taught and directed at The John Beasley Workshop, which he founded at Center Stage.
