I Have A Dream--To Survive Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Actor Manages to Avoid Final Curtain Call

MINNEAPOLIS--Under the bright lights of Mixed Blood Theater, Warren Bowles is right at home.

He’s graced its stage for the last 40 years, but Saturday’s performance of “Dr. King’s Dream,” a role he’s played nearly 1,000 times, is in its own way a first.

“It makes me feel good to be back in the theater working,” said Bowles, an actor who went into cardiac arrest on stage.

The last time Warren was on stage at Mixed Blood Theater was in September. It was opening night for the play, “Neighbors,” and he was about to give a very unscripted performance.

“The stage manager knew something was wrong because I was a little far back stage. The light was hitting me at my legs instead of hitting up and I know enough to hit my light. That was very strange to him,” said Bowles.

A sudden cardiac arrest upstaged Warren.

“They say I stopped and just went over backwards,” he said.
