Born in Los Angeles, California, Grammy-nominated artist Alexandra Silber received her formal training at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, graduating with a degree in acting, and just days later, at the age of 21, made her professional and West End debut as Laura Fairlie in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Woman in White.
Alexandra's British stage work includes Hodel in the Sheffield Crucible’s 2007 production of Fiddler on the Roof, and its subsequent West End transfer, and Julie Jordan in Carousel at The Savoy Theatre in London’s West End (for which she received a TMA Award for Best Performance in a Musical). She also appeared at the BBC Proms at Royal Albert Hall with the John Wilson Orchestra.
Alexandra made her American acting debut in a revival of her portrayal of Julie Jordan for Reprise Theater Company in Los Angeles. In her New York theater debut, she portrayed The Young Wife in the Transport Group’s revival of Michael John LaChiusa’s Hello Again (Drama League Award), and later that year played opposite Tony-Award winner Tyne Daly in Terrence McNally’s Master Class at the Kennedy Center. She made her Broadway debut in the same production (called by Backstage one of the great theater performances of 2011) and played Sara Jane in the highly-acclaimed Arlington—a new one-woman, tour-de-force musical at the Vineyard Theater (Outer Critics Circle Nomination for Best Solo Performance). Alexandra recently completed a run on Broadway as Tzeitel in the Tony-nominated revival of Fiddler on the Roof directed by Barlett Sher and starring six-time Tony Nominee Danny Burstein as Tevye.
On screen Alexandra appeared in Stephen King's 1408 starring John Cusack, and she has been a guest star on Elementary, The Mysteries of Laura, and Law &Order.
Alexandra was honored to be a part of Barbara Cook’s Spotlight Series at The Kennedy Center and made her Carnegie Hall debut singing the role of Nina in a concert performance of Song Of Norway with the Collegiate Chorale and American Symphony Orchestra. She was nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award for her portrayal of Maria (opposite Cheyenne Jackson as Tony) with the San Francisco Symphony in a concert presentation of West Side Story, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas. She performed on the 57th Grammy Award broadcast with Cheyenne Jackson.
In the spring of 2018 Alexandra completed a box office record-breaking run playing Guinevere in a new production of Lerner and Lowe's Camelot at the Shakespeare Theater in Washington, DC, followed by her debut at Chicago Shakespeare Theater as Titania in Joe Dowling’s celebrated production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Alexandra has a fondness for crime drama, watermelon, and red shoes. She lives in New York with her famous cat, Tatiana.
