Originally seeking a career in

he joined the Lyric Players Theater and made his stage debut in Joseph Plunkett's
"The Risen People." He later joined Ireland's prestigious Abbey
Theatre. He made his Broadway debut in 1993, in the Roundabout Theater's
revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Anna Christie," for which he garnered
a Tony Award nomination. In 1998 starred on Broadway again as Oscar Wilde in
David Hare's "The Judas Kiss," and in March of 2002, he began a run
on Broadway in Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" at The Virginia
Theater. When that play goes dark, Neeson has signed on to star in the yet
untitled prequel to "The Exorcist," for director John Frankenheimer.
