"He had an incredible mind and incredible talent," Dixon told the Times. "It was intoxicating to hear his stories and have someone connect you to the whole history of the theater."
Rose was murdered at his vacation home in the Dominican Republic while on break from a national tour of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. He had adopted a teenager named Juan and legally designated him his sole heir; investigators determined that he had been beaten to death by Juan and the boy's biological father, joined by two other men. The group tried to stage the death as if it had been a car accident but later confessed to the crime.
After Rose's death, Dixon suffered from drug addiction and financial troubles. He now has two plays set to start production.
"It's my most personal work," Dixon told the Times about Georgie: The Life and Death of George Rose. "This one is so outright from my own personal experience."
