Over his storied career, Mr. Rose starred on Broadway and in London alongside such stars as Katharine Hepburn, Noel Coward, Dame Edith Evans, Richard Burton, and Laurence Olivier. He was last seen on Broadway in the original 1985 production of 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood,' for which he won his second Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Ed Dixon examines his longtime friendship with Rose and their love for the stage in this solo show, which premiered at Arlington Virginia's Signature Theatre in 2016.

DC Theatre Scene

for a previous production "Alternately hilarious and riveting…Dixon not only acquits himself honorably as the playwright, but also as an actor portraying Rose...It becomes absolutely riveting in its last 20 minutes. Credit the sheer bravery of Dixon as a writer to crack open his sternum and reveal his bare, broken heart to this audience and credit Eric Schaeffer as director for establishing the final shift in tone so dramatically...See the hilarious and riveting Georgie to laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh." Full Review

Talkin' Broadway

for a previous production "What starts out as a sweet remembrance of a friend and mentor becomes an attempt to come to terms with the fact that a beloved friend could be capable of unforgivable behavior. The way the 90-minute show is structured by Dixon and directed by Eric Schaeffer, the audience comes away feeling some of the same moral uncertainty and personal loss as the performer." Full Review

MD Theatre Guide

for a previous production “Schaeffer’s set design captures both the theatre and its metaphorical collapse…There is a careful attention to detail and meaning here, just as in the script, which lifts the piece above amusing anecdote, though there are certainly plenty of amusing anecdotes…An aficionado of the theatre will find a depth and breadth of references which will delight. Dixon’s performance is superb, and, together with Schaeffer, who also directed, they admirably handle a word-heavy 90 minutes of theatre.” Full Review

DC Metro Theater Arts

for a previous production "'Georgie’ is exceptionally fascinating for the account of one human beings jumble of brightness and darkness. Ed Dixon has written and performed a play that is rare; a very personal account of a flawed friend and mentor…It is a mostly delightful story about a great actor and a flawed human being. It will linger with you after the lights go up and you hit the winter chill. I will never forget it!" Full Review

TheatreBloom

for a previous production "Exceptional and stellar theatre…This piece of theatrical genius will sweep audiences away...A thoroughly delightful production that will nestle itself into the cockles of your heart before upending you into an emotional sinkhole from the likes of which there is only a rewarding and cathartic escape at the show’s conclusion. Remarkable, a tale worth telling, a story worth sharing, Ed Dixon’s performance will leave a handprint on your heart that will not soon be forgotten." Full Review

90
BroadwayWorld

for a previous production “Dixon's stories about his relationship with Rose range from hilarious to heart wrenching…'Georgie’ is a powerful and passionate production that turns out to be more than the typical story of a mentor and mentee. Dixon's talent is remarkable and his dedication to his craft is shown in the way he approaches every character within this production…You endure Dixon's emotional roller coaster along with him every step of the way.” Full Review
