WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: Well, she is part of an all-star cast of one of off-Broadway's new musicals. She more than holds her own in this company. She made her Broadway debut in 2008, as a replacement Wendla in Spring Awakening. Later, she would open to great notices and audience apathy in Brighton Beach Memoirs, part of what was to be The Neil Simon Plays. Regionally, she co-starred in We Always Lived in the Castle. More recently, she has been off-Broadway in The Dream of the Burning Boy, a hit play as part of Roundabout's Underground. Her career is definitely on the rise, and now with Death Takes a Holiday, it makes perfect sense that Alexandra Socha is August's Ms. Broadway.
Birth date: April 10, 1990, making her 21!
