Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose
Written by and Starring Ed Dixon
33 characters in 90 non-stop minutes
Mr. Dixon morphed from one character to another, delivering incisive impersonations and well-timed punch lines.
—The New York Times
It’s all about the story, George Rose would instruct fellow actor Ed Dixon over the course of their 20 year friendship. And boy, did Georgie have quite a story. In this “giddy, humorous celebration” (The New York Times), Dixon (Sunset Boulevard, Cloak & Dagger) chronicles his relationship with his friend and mentor, the Tony Award-winning character actor George Rose (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, My Fair Lady, Pirates of Penzance).
A bon-vivant with a flair for the dramatic and the eccentric, Rose starred on Broadway and London stages alongside luminaries like Katharine Hepburn, Noel Coward, Dame Edith Evans, Richard Burton, and Laurence Olivier in a storied career that met an ignoble end.
Filled with “witty reminiscences” and “tantalizing us with anecdotes, snippets of song and dance and Dixon’s pitch perfect impersonations of the colorful and famous” (Berkshire On Stage), Georgie is a one-man, one-act play that is as hilarious as it is poignant and powerful.
He tells juicy stories with impish delight.
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!
Dixon’s talent is remarkable.
Alternately hilarious and riveting solo stare by Ed Dixon.
A powerful and passionate production.
