SUNDAY READING: Bright spotlight for West Seattle actor with autism

You might have seen that video online – or maybe this New York Times story from earlier this week – without realizing its subject, actor Mickey Rowe, lives in West Seattle. Mickey has gained natioal fame as “the first openly autistic actor to play the role” of Christopher, an autistic teenager, in “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” He told us he is on the road for three months, performing the play (which closed in Syracuse today, after a run in Indiana) and will return to West Seattle, where he lives in an apartment in The Triangle. He is a 2011 graduate of the University of Washington drama program with a long list of theatrical accomplishments, even before this role brought him a bright spotlight.
