As a youth with an eye always toward the stage, Alexander connived his parents into giving him voice lessons so that he could “train for his bar mitzvah.” His first tentative acting steps were taken in school plays, and byage 15, he had adopted his professional name, Jason Alexander.
Despite being granted a full scholarship to the School of Fine Arts at Boston University, he left after two years to act in a “B” film, The Burning (1981), and a made-for-TV movie, Senior Trip. His big break came when he landed the lead role in the Broadway production of the Stephen Sondheim/George Furth musical, Merrily We RollAlong. Unfortunately for Alexander, the play closed after just two weeks, but it gave him important visibility.
