Death: May 31, 2011

Broadway Producer, Director. He was best known for his staging of stories which sensitively portrayed African-Americans. Born Philip Rosenberg, he was raised in Washington when his father founded a men's clothing store. After briefly attending Brooklyn College, he joined his family's business while pursuing a singing career and continued in the entertainment industry as a record executive, eventually finding his own label. Rose's first encounter with the stage was his bringing to fruition playwright Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun", which initially opened in New Haven followed by a successful run on Broadway (1959 to 1960). The play which starred Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee garnered Rose a Tony Award nomination. In addition, he received a nomination for the musical "Purlie" (1970) and earned a Tony Award with "Shenandoah" (1975). (bio by: C.S.)
