First, After Anatevka, which follows the story of the character Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof after the events of the musical; the other, White Hot Grief Parade, is a memoir that discusses the loss of her father and will be released next year.

“Alexandra Silber: The fastest-rising soprano in musical theatre…the firestarter for getting the Broadway world re-acquainted with its ‘legit sound’ – the same crystal clear, open voice that Leonard Bernstein would have heard in his first ‘Maria’…”

Alexandra Silber & Friends
Alexandra assembles an All-Star cast of celebrity co-stars for a concert honoring the magnificent works of Lerner & Loewe. Named one of the breakout theater stars of 2016 by AM New York in “Who is the next Lin-Manuel Miranda”; “She’s great as Tevye’s eldest daughter Tzeitel in the Broadway revival of “Fiddler on the Roof,” but the role doesn’t really showcase Silber’s pristine soprano voice. We need to see her take on a vocally sumptuous role in a classic musical like My Fair Lady or Candide.” Your audiences will be captivated by her portrayals of Eliza Dootlittle in My Fair Lady, Fiona in Brigadoon, and Guenevere in Camelot.

…simply gorgeous…
 West Side Story – “Alexandra Silber sounds simply gorgeous as Maria. Her performance is thoughtful, naturally phrased, tremulous with emotion, and colored with a natural shimmer that sounds luscious and communicates directly. Silber and Jackson really connect, too; their stretch of dialogue when Maria and Tony meet at the gym is convincing and thoroughly gripping. In “Tonight,” they weave musical-theater magic. Silber eases slowly and tentatively into the beginning, as a young girl might, while Jackson’s more headstrong Tony drives the tempo forward. When they sing in unison, her silken legit soprano and his bright theatrical tenor meet in a sweet spot in the middle, and the deal is sealed. Their transfixing “One Hand, One Heart” is even better: it has historic, ageless weight. The vocals are pure and perfect, and with Tilson Thomas’s supremely controlled pacing, time seems to have stopped.”– Opera News
…musically lustrous performance…
 Arlington – “Sara Jane is flawlessly portrayed by the gifted singer Alexandra Silber. Ms. Pen’s carefully written but unobtrusive music, and Mr. Lodato’s well-sketched portrait of a young woman beginning to question the beliefs she’s been raised with, are certainly nicely integrated; the music and lyrics mirror each other in mood perfectly. Ms. Pen’s music follows the wanderings of Sara Jane’s mind dutifully and with agility. Ms. Silber gives an impressive, confident and musically lustrous performance. Her soprano has a bright, blooming sheen.” – The New York Times 
…remarkable taste, versatility, and sheer depth of musical knowledge…
Crazy Coqs – “ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Just now and again someone special comes along who is forever bookmarked in your Favourites and you never let them go. In a most unusual and eclectic collection of songs, Silber shows remarkable taste, versatility and sheer depth of musical knowledge that makes quite a change from the standard material offered by many cabaret artists today. What an evening to start September. I doubt there will be anything classier any time soon  – Musical Theater Review
…utterly phenomenal…
 Crazy Coqs – “Just seen the utterly phenomenal Alexandra Silber (@alsilbs) open her season at @CrazyCoqs: a glorious musical night. Not only does @alsilbs have the most shimmering, sure theatrical soprano this side of @AudraEqualityMc, she also has an authentic spirit. That makes @alsilbs a real one-of-a-kind original; she’s hilarious, moving & miraculous sounding — often all at once! I’m going again!” – Mark Shenton of The Stage
