McKay also played Gabey in a 1963 London production of Leonard Bernstein's On the Town; performed with Judy Garland in A Star Is Born (1954) during her "Gotta Have Me Go With You" number; and sang in 1956 on Washington Square, an NBC variety series starring Ray Bolger.



Born Donald Juan Hawkins on January 28, 1925, in Clarksburg, West Virginia, McKay joined the U.S. Army at the height of World War II, serving in the 7th Infantry Regiment throughout Italy and Germany. Following the war, he attended art school in France before returning to the United States in 1945.
