DETROIT, Mich. – Lauded by the Huffington Post as “Broadway’s fastest-rising soprano,” Birmingham-native Alexandra Silber returns to her hometown in a performance called “Coming Home: Alexandra Silber in Concert.” She will make her return to the Birmingham stage on Saturday, March 24 at 7 and 9:30 p.m. at the Black Box Theatre at the Detroit Opera House. The performance is being put on by Cabaret 313, a local organization that is dedicated to bringing cabaret to the Detroit area.
“Alexandra Silber fits this criteria perfectly,” said Allan Nachman, President and Executive Director of Cabaret 313. “Her experience from performing arts schooling in Glasgow, acting and singing performances in London’s West End and her numerous rave-reviewed Broadway performances makes her one of the leading ladies on the stage.”
Born in Los Angeles and raised in Birmingham, Michigan, Silber made her professional and West End debut as “Laurie Fairlie” in “The Woman in White” at the age of 21. This was followed by highly-acclaimed performances in “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Carousel” at the Sheffield Crucible and The Savoy Theatre, respectively.
Most recently, Silber was nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award for her portrayal of Maria in a historic, first-ever concert presentation of “West Side Story” accompanied by the first-ever full symphonic recording featuring the San Francisco Symphony.
“Silber has an incredible history on stages across the world, and coming home to share her experiences is quite a treat,” said Nachman. “Her exceptional voice and superb acting will only accentuate the stories she tells.”
Following her performance with Cabaret 313, Silber will meet with young artists from Mosaic Youth Theatre in Detroit for an intimate one-on-one master class giving the students a chance to receive direct feedback from her. This masterclass is the fourth of four classes given during Cabaret 313’s Fifth Anniversary season, aligning with its mission to foster the growth of the cabaret art form through educational programming in and around the city.
“We have presented these master classes for quite some time now with an incredible response from the students that take part in them,” Nachman said. “Being able to develop your acting and singing skills with one of today’s leading Broadway stars is an incomparable and potentially life-changing experience.”
Tickets for Alexandra Silber’s Coming Home: Alexandra Silber in Concert are $60 for General seating, $125 for Preferred seating and $25 for attendees age 40 & Younger. Guests to the 9:30 p.m. performance can enjoy a three-course dinner at the Detroit Athletic Club Penthouse for an additional $63 per person.
