Jason Alexander: An Evening of Comedy and Song

“What a lot of people don’t know,” actor Jason Alexander tells us, “is that I’m an old song-and-dance man.” (And if we believe his biography, he’s also a director, producer, teacher, poker player, magician and author.) Set for a three-day run with the Houston Symphony in Jason Alexander: An Evening of Comedy and Song, the actor, best known for his role as George Costanza on the television series Seinfeld, says he knows audiences come in expecting George to sing and dance. “It’s my job to make them forget about George Costanza and leave the [concert hall] with a new view of Jason Alexander.”
