Belated ‘Angry’ preem

B'way bow 50 years too late

Reginald Rose’s “Twelve Angry Men” had its Broadway preem Thursday night at the American Airlines theater, 50 years after it first aired on TV and two years after the death of the “Defenders” scribe.

“I don’t think Reggie thought this would ever happen,” said his widow, Ellen. “There are so many stops and starts in this business.”

His widow and three sons, Jon, Steve and Thomas Rose, were there to celebrate at the China Club party, which also brought out a number of Reginald Rose’s in-laws and nieces.

“Most of them have never seen the play — only the movie and TV show,” his widow said.
