My View: When It’s A Great Show It Gets Two After Parties – Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose

Sometimes when a show is that good it gets an after party before the opening night after party.  The team at Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose celebrated after it’s first preview at The Loft at The Davenport Theatre on Jan 25th.  The official opening night is February 1 with an opening night after party at Sardi’s.

It has been said that theatre at its most basic is great storytelling.  Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose is an exhilarating story, and indeed brilliantly told. Two-time Tony® Award-winning character actor George Rose (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, My Fair Lady, The Pirates of Penzance), a bon-vivant with a flair for the dramatic and the eccentric, starred on the 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 unexpected end. 

In this giddy, humorous, and moving celebration, Ed Dixon recounts his own tale of how he came to know and admire George over a twenty-year friendship until the unimaginable changed everything. Georgie introduces us to the greatest stars of the London and Broadway stage with laughs and surprises, tantalizing anecdotes, and flashes of song and dance. Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose is as hilarious and captivating as it is poignant and powerful. An amazing journey for all who love theater. 

Georgie is produced by Martin Platt & David Elliott, with Mary Cossette, Jamie deRoy, Riki Kane Larimer, Richard Winkler and Mike Blank

Performances began Wednesday, January 25, 2017 for a limited engagement through April 15, 2017 at The Loft at The Davenport Theatre (354 West 45th Street, between 8th & 9th Avenues).  Opening Night is Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at 7:30pm.
