FOLSOM — Jason Alexander, actor, director, Tony Award-winner and “Seinfeld” alum, delivers a variety show as diverse, as entertaining and as enthusiastic as his résumé. Featuring stand-up comedy, music, audience participation and a “Seinfeld” Q & A, come to the Harris Center for the Arts on Oct. 23 for a unique glimpse into the multi-award winner’s charismatic, enthusiastic personality.
Alexander is undoubtedly best known for his iconic portrayal of hapless George Costanza on the legendary hit show “Seinfeld.” The series continues to play around the world, showcasing the reason Alexander received seven Emmy nominations, four Golden Globe nominations, two American Television Awards, two American Comedy Awards and two Screen Actor Guild awards for his indelible work. But his career is one that defines diversity in every form — acting, producing, directing, writing and in every media.
Initially focusing on the Broadway stage, Alexander has starred in the original production of Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along” as well as “The Rink,” Neil Simon’s “Broadway Bound” and Jerome Robbin’s “Broadway” — a musical revue that Alexander both authored and starred in, playing 14 different roles each night and for which he won the Drama Desk, Outer Critic Circle and Tony Award for Best Musical Actor. Even after moving to Los Angeles, he continued his dedication to the theater by becoming the artistic director of the Reprise Theatre Company and triumphantly starring with Martin Short in the LA production of Mel Brook’s “The Producers.”
An Evening with Jason Alexander and His Hair will perform at Harris Center at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23. Tickets are $49 to $69 with premium seats available for $79. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from Harris Center ticket office at (916) 608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.
