In "Judy Garland: By Myself," the legendary actress-singer tells her story in her own words. The documentary uses recordings Garland made in preparation for writing her (never published) autobiography, never-before-seen rehearsal footage, rare outtakes and alternate takes of Garland’s numerous performances from the MGM archives. Keating provides the voice of Garland for additional materials.
Keating created the role of Lotty Wilton in the world premiere of Matthew Barber's Enchanted April at The Hartford Stage Company. She was awarded the 2000 Helen Hayes Award for Best Actress for Tom Stoppard's Indian Ink at Washington, D.C.'s Studio Theatre. Other regional credits include The Rise and Fall of Little Voice and Dinner With Friends.
