Alexis Fishman will make her debut performance at 54 Below (254 W. 54th Street) on March 21st, 2013 at 9:30pm, as winner of the New York Musical Theatre Festival's 2012 Next Broadway Sensation competition.
Dubbed "A Star in the Making" by Australia's Herald Sun newspaper before packing her bags and heading to New York City, Alexis Fishman has once again attracted attention after being named the NYMF's 2012 Next Broadway Sensation. Her New York theater debut was, at NYMF, in the lead role of Amber Murray in the musical, The Hatpin and we are thrilled to be presenting her 54 Below debut!
With musical director Darren R. Cohen (A Chorus Line, Chicago), Alexis will perform an eclectic mix of material including musical theater favorites, Amy Winehouse, Antonio Carlos Jobim, never-before-heard songs from young theatre composers, and some fun on the Ukulele.
Max Chernin, who was a finalist in the NYMF Next Broadway Sensation competition, will open for Alexis.
After graduating from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (Hugh Jackman's Alma Mater), Alexis debuted as Mary O'Brien in the smash-hit Australian musical Dusty about the life of Dusty Springfield, earning herself a Helpmann Nomination (Australia's Tony equivalent). She went on to perform the roles of Lil in Troupers for the Sydney Theatre Company, Little Sally in Urinetown, Alice in Closer, Marianne in the Australian national tour of Shout!: The Johnny O'Keefe Story and the titular role in the Sydney Theatre Award-nominated Australian premiere of Kiss of the Spiderwoman. Alexis's one-woman show set in Weimar Berlin, Der Gelbe Stern, premiered at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2011, followed by sold-out runs in Sydney and Melbourne.
