Broadway (Fiddler on the Roof) actress and Grammy-nominated singer Alexandra Silber, whom The New York Times has called “glamorous and hyper articulate” makes her Blue Strawberry debut in an evening of song and story. Featuring an eclectic array of music spanning folk, jazz, standards and Broadway favorites, this show was named on the the Top 10 Best Cabaret Events by Broadway World. “[Silber] moves effortlessly from lyrical soprano singing to full-on Broadway belting right through her hilarious and sometimes touching talkie bits and back again. With a seemingly indestructible larynx that can give over sounds ranging from blaring trumpet to low low growls to high HIGH trills, oftentimes within the same composition. Her Broadway-caliber vocals applied to this music showed the full extent of her impressive range.”
Alexandra Silber is an actress, Grammy-nominated singer, and author. In London’s West End she played starring roles in Indecent, The Woman in White, Fiddler on the Roof, Kiss Me Kate and Carousel.
