Charles Keating was a trained Shakespearean actor and was born in London. His family immigrated to Canada when he was a teenager. At 19, he tried out for a play in nearby Niagara Falls. Soon enough, he was working at the Cleveland Play House and the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. As part of the Minnesota Theatre Company, he acted on Broadway in The House of Atreus and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, which played in rep in 1968.

He moved back to England when Tyrone Guthrie asked him to open the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England, in 1971. He stayed in the U.K. for 12 years, appearing with the Royal Shakespeare Company and at the Chichester Festival Theatre.

In 1986, he appeared in a revival of Joe Orton's cutting farce Loot, and was Tony-nominated for his work. The show had started Off-Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club.
