Alexandra Silber- Book FestivalDate: November 10, 2018Time: 7:00 pm
After Anatevka The world knows well the tale of Tevye, Golde, and their five daughters, but what happened to those remarkable characters after the curtain fell? In After Anatevka, Alexandra Silber picks up where Fiddler on the Roof left off. Second-eldest daughter Hodel takes center stage as she attempts to join her Socialist-leaning fiancé Perchik to the outer reaches of a Siberian work camp. But before Hodel and Perchik can finally be together, they both face extraordinary hurdles and adversaries both personal and political attempting to keep them apart at all costs. In a special hybrid of reading and performance, Alexandra will address the cultural meaning of Fiddler on the Roof, her own personal connection with the show, and the process of writing her novel. Alexandra will also reference her newest publication,
“White Hot Grief Parade”. Accompanied by her pianist, Alexandra will present a fully dramatized mini piece of theatre including musical performances.
Grammy nominated international actress and singer Alexandra Silber has starred in productions from Broadway to London's West End, and has been dubbed as “the fastest-rising soprano in musical theatre” by the Huffington Post. She received a Grammy nomination for her portrayal of Maria in the recording of 'West Side Story' with the San Francisco Symphony and has performed with symphony orchestras across the globe.
