Veteran Broadway Director and Producer, Richard Jay-Alexander has been a vital part of the Broadway community for over 30 years-first as a performer, then as director of productions ranging from LES MISERABLES to Guys & Dolls.
The Cuban-born, Miami resident-now well-known for successfully staging concerts with luminaries including Barbra Streisand, Bernadette Peters, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Kristin Chenoweth and Bette Midler-strikes again next week on November 15 when he directs the star-studded grand opening of the new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, a prestigious new venue that will both transform the city and reshape the way people think about Orlando as a destination for entertainment.
