IN MEMORIAM... We are heartbroken to share the news of the death of our beloved friend and colleague, David Rose, who passed away suddenly on June 24, 2016.
David's career began at The Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington DC. He later moved to New York City and finally settled in Los Angeles where he joined The Colony Theatre Company in 1990.
The list of plays he directed in his 26 years with
The Colony is endless, and includes such stellar productions as The Best of
Enemies, American Fiesta, Shooting Star, Year Zero, Visiting Mr. Green,
Mary's Wedding, The Voice of the Prairie, Almost, Maine, Master Harold...and
the Boys, ...a Young Lady from Rwanda, Billy Bishop Goes to War, Sherlock's
Last Case, The Drawer Boy, The Nerd, Fuddy Meers, Beautiful in the Extreme,
The Man Who Came to Dinner, The Living, Our Country's Good, The Front Page
... and the list goes on. He was equally brilliant with searing drama and
light comedy. Regardless of the play, his rehearsals were always fun, and
actors, designers, and crews adored him. He was a gifted, generous, kind,
incredibly funny human being, and it's very, very hard to imagine a world
that he is not in.
