Alex brings a lifetime of work in the theatre as a classically trained actor and director to her work in front of the mic. With an MFA in theatre from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and a background in Shakespeare, she excels at connecting listeners to the author's world. A theatre teacher for 23 years and a Boston native, she records from her home studio, is an accidental gardener and once ran a marathon on purpose and not while being chased.
Did I mention I ran a marathon?
I was once called a young Olympia Dukakis and an Annette Bening type in one night.
It was a good night.
Being an accidental gardener means things grow, but I'm not sure why or how.
I adore Shakespeare.
Billy and I are on a first name basis.
I have an irrational fear of paper cuts and falling down stairs.
I can solve a Rubix Cube.
I know everyone can these days -
but I'm a GenXer - so this is huge.
I'm a general all around snarky loud lady who loves making people laugh.
I can't cook.
Don't ask me to. I once burned water.
My husband is a Pilot. So, I'm married to the real Captain Picard. Live long and prosper people.
I taught theatre at the high school and college level for 23 years.
