Alexandra Socha, who graduated from the ensemble of the original Broadway Spring Awakening to the role of Wendla late in the run, will share her life story through story and song in the solo show Finding Home, scheduled for 9:30 PM June 28 at Feinstein’s/54 Below cabaret in Manhattan.
Producers said that Socha “lets the audience into her innermost thoughts as she wrestles with her relationship to the theatre and performing; what it meant to her growing up, when it changed, how it got lost, and why she decided to rebuild.“ She will tell her story through a mix of music, from classic showtunes to bluegrass and acoustic folk. “Alexandra makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with a story she is finally ready to share.”
The show is being directed by Eric Michael Gillett with music direction by Adam Ben-David.
Socha made her Broadway debut in 2006 at age 17 in the original cast of Spring Awakening and returned in the short-lived 2009 revival of Brighton Beach Memoirs. In 2015 she played Jennifer in the Encores! revival of Paint Your Wagon. Off-Broadway she also appeared in The Dream of The Burning Boy (Drama League Award nomination), Maury Yeston’s Death Takes A Holiday, and Fun Home at The Public Theatre (Lucille Lortel Nomination/Best Actress in a Musical), in which she introduced the song “Changing My Major,” though she did not transfer to Broadway with the rest of the cast.
Socha’s TV credits include Amazon's Red Oaks, and recurring roles on Damages opposite Glenn Close, The Big C, and Royal Pains.
There is a $30–$40 cover charge plus a $25 food/beverage minimum for the 9:30 PM concert. Tickets can be ordered at 54Below.com. Feinstein’s/54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street in Manhattan.
