Alexandra Silber Biography

Born in Los Angeles, California, Alexandra Silber grew up outside Detroit, Michigan. She attended Interlochen Center for the Arts, graduating with the coveted Young Artist Award, and continued her training at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) in Glasgow, majoring in Acting. She graduated in 2005 with The Faculty Student of the Year Award just days before her West End debut as Laura Fairlie in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Woman in White. Alexandra made her feature film debut in Stephen King’s 1408, starring John Cusack, before portraying Hodel in The Sheffield Crucible’s 2007 production of Fiddler on the Roof, and it’s subsequent West End transfer. She joined Fiddler on the Roof director Lindsay Posner once again, portraying Julie Jordan in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel at The Savoy Theatre in London’s West End. She received tremendous critical acclaim, and Great Britain’s TMA Award for Best Performance in a Musical. Alexandra made her American acting debut in a revival of her portrayal of Julie Jordan for Reprise Theatre Company in Los Angeles (under the artistic directorship of Jason Alexander) once again to overwhelming critical acclaim, and garnered an Ovation nomination. She joined Tony Award winner Tyne Daly in Terrence McNally’s Master Class at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, directed by Stephen Wadsworth, and made her Broadway debut in the same production with Manhattan Theatre Club in the Spring of 2011 (garnering a nod from Backstage for one of the “great Theater Performances of 2011).” Alexandra made her New York theatre debut portraying The Young Wife in the Transport Group’s Revival of Michael John LaChiusa’s Hello Again, and was nominated for a Drama League Award. She debuted two of her solo cabarets entitled “London Still” and “Ex Libris,” at the esteemed New York nightclub Feinstein’s at The Loews Regency, and was honored to be a part of Barbara Cook’s Spotlight Series at The Kennedy Center in December of 2011. Alexandra portrayed Jenny Cavilerri in the North American Premiere of Love Story the Musical at The Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, and returned to New York in a highly-acclaimed performance of Arlington – a new one woman musical, as part of the Inner Voices series. Alexandra has also appeared as a Guest Star on all three branches of the “Law & Order” series (“SVU,” “Criminal Intent” and the original), as well as “The Mysteries of Laura.” In 2013 Alexandra made her Carnegie Hall debut singing the role of Nina with the Collegiate Chorale and American Symphony Orchestra in a concert performance of Song of Norway, followed by a summer festival appearance at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts with The Orchestra of St. Luke’s as Amalia Balash in She Loves Me, marking the first time a musical has been presented at this prestigious venue. Alexandra made her San Francisco Symphony debut as Maria in concert performances of West Side Story with Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas, from which a critically acclaimed recording was released, and for which she received a Grammy nomination. Alexandra returned to her hometown to appear with Leonard Slatkin and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in the world premiere of David Del Tredici’s opera Dum Dee Tweedle. Alexandra received an Outer Critics Circle nomination for Best Solo Performance in the full-length version of Arlington at the Vineyard Theater. She made her MUNY debut as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, and returns to the San Francisco Symphony to join Michael Tilson Thomas, Patrick Stewart, and Nathan Gunn for the season opening gala.
