Jewish Federation: An evening with Jason Alexander
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
649 Cambie Street
Join us for a uniquely interactive evening of entertainment and Jewish discussion featuring Jason Alexander from Seinfeld.
The persona of George Costanza on NBC’s Seinfeld garnered him six Emmy and four Golden Globe nominations, an American Television Award and two American Comedy Awards. The Screen Actors Guild knighted him “Best Actor in a Comedy Series” and TV Guide readers voted him among the ten greatest television characters of all time.
Beyond Seinfeld, Alexander’s career is one that defines diversity. His Broadway debut came in the original production of Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along. Alexander starred on Broadway five times, eventually hired to write the libretto for Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, in which he also played 14 different characters and which won him the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Tony Awards. Los Angeles audiences have enjoyed his many stage performances there, most notably his acclaimed run alongside Martin Short in Mel Brook’s The Producers. This past summer, The Actor’s Fund honoured Jason with the “Julie Harris Award for Lifetime Achievement”.
Tickets: $18 – $40 (Students $18)
