Alexandra recently completed a run on Broadway as Tzeitel in the revival of Fiddler of the Roof directed by Barlett Sher, starring 6-time Tony Nominee Danny Burstein as Tevye, followed immediately by creating the role of Countess Andreyni in Ken Ludwig's adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express at the McCarter Theater Center, and playing Guenevere in the celebrated Shakespeare Theater Company revival of The Lerner and Lowe classic Camelot in Washington DC.
Alexandra is also an avid blogger, writer, and teacher, and when she is not working, enjoys quoting the film "What About Bob?," and 'fan-girling' over Angela Lansbury -- but not necessarily in that order. She also has a fondness for crime drama, watermelon, and red shoes. She lives in New York with her famous cat, Tatiana.
After Anatevka is her first book, now available in paperback. Her memoir, White Hot Grief Parade is now available, also from Pegasus Books.
