Ideation at Theatre Exile
Alex starred as Sandeep in an acclaimed production of Aaron Loeb's Ideation at Theatre Exile in Philadelphia.
"A stellar cast of five delivers hilarious tour-de-force portrayals... ... The top-notch performances – each and every one is uproarious – build to a frenzy... Theatre Exile at its finest, funniest, and most ferocious."
"A deliciously tense production... ... The play’s real strength — and the production’s, too, with a bang-up cast — comes from the conundrum it poses by pitting the greater good against a great evil."
"This will make Glengarry Glen Ross look like child's play... ... A play that races on, both terrifying and amusing... ... Joe Canuso has directed this strong cast with just the right ambiguity of tone."
Ninety minutes from now, a group of stressed-out corporate consultants is slated to present their work on a mysterious project.
It's time to brainstorm within the morally ambiguous parameters they've been given so they can make it to their kids' soccer games and continue their ill-advised affairs. But as they work, the question of what they aren't being told looms ever larger, becoming harder to ignore. If something truly monstrous is going on, it wouldn't be happening over Starbucks scones... would it? A ferocious and hilarious thriller.
Ideation was directed by Theatre Exile founding artistic director Joe Canuso.

Disgraced at the Black Box Performing Arts Center
Alex starred as Abe in Disgraced at the Black Box Performing Arts Center in Teaneck, New Jersey.
Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, Disgraced centers around Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she's an artist, and her work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging.
Disgraced was directed by Black Box PAC artistic director Matt Okin.
