In Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose, Ed Dixon recounts his own tale of how he came to know and admire two-time Tony® Award-winning character actor George Rose (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, My Fair Lady, The Pirates of Penzance) over a twenty-year friendship until the unimaginable changed everything.
Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose, directed by Eric Schaeffer, received its world premiere at The Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia, in January 2016. This roller coaster ride of a show captured audiences in Washington like none other, and the critics raved: “A stunner! He tells juicy stories with impish delight,” said The Washington Post, while DC Metro Theatre Arts simply stated, “Deeply profound. A delightful story about a great actor and a flawed human being. It will linger with you after the lights go up…I will never forget it!” DC Theatre Scene declared “FIVE STARS!…See the hilarious and riveting Georgie to laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh.” BroadwayWorld Washington exclaimed, “Dixon’s talent is remarkable. A powerful and passionate production.” and The New York Times stated, “Mr. Dixon morphed from one character to another, delivering incisive impersonations and well-timed punch lines.”
