Alexander's New York solo debut. He last appeared on Broadway as one-fourth of The Williams Brothers in the Tony Award-winning, Liza's At the Palace. For the past several years, he has been performing "The Swell Show" across the country, mixing pop, jazz, lesser-known Broadway tunes, and original compositions combined with amusing biographical anecdotes.

Alexander is supported by two spirited "Swell Girls," including Melissa Bailey (with whom he appeared in Broadway's Marilyn: An American Fable) and Julie Garnye (Cats). Musical direction for the evening will be Billy Stritch.
