Meet Wonderfully Wise Alex Wyse

Posted by Tom Diggs (Creator)

It is with great pleasure that we are announcing Principal Casting this week for “The Perks of Writing a Musical.” After many rounds of auditions and callbacks, we have found our Josh, the main character of the show. Alex Wyse charmed us with his vulnerability, his acting, his intelligence, his sense of humor, and his star quality. He carries a balance of dignity and shyness; he’s naturally got that sexy/geeky thing that could believably get the girl while leading his nerd-herd to computer-game glory. Alex is an old school triple threat: a wonderful actor, terrific singer, and great dancer – and a versatile musician. (That would actually make him a quadruple threat.) And wait till you hear him sing! He can belt out a ballad as easily as he can rock the house. We couldn’t be more excited to have Alex as our Josh!

Here’s his professional bio:

Alex’s credits include Academy at the Daegu International Musical Festival in South Korea and at The Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Lost In Yonkers at The Paper Mill Playhouse, The Cleveland Play House, and The Maltz Jupiter Theatre, The Last Smoker In America in NYMF; Mrs. Sharp at Playwrights Horizons; Speech & Debate (Elliot Norton Award for Best Production, Best Ensemble Nominee); The Cherry Orchard; Our Town; The Lion In Winter; Urinetown; Gypsy; She Loves Me; Lord of the Flies; Summer of ’42. TV: “Bored to Death” (HBO); “Quality Time With the Keenes” (Nickelodeon); “Kid Concoctions” and “Handel’s Messiah Rocks” (PBS). Alex has also appeared in several national commercials and can be heard on the audio book, The Danger Box. Also a writer, Alex authored the musical Nighttime Traffic, which premiered in the 2010 New York Musical Theatre Festival.
