What are people saying about JB's work?

"I'm very glad it's out there."

                                                        -- Sir Tom Stoppard on (conversation with author)

"A masterpiece."


The Metamorphosis is "exceptional work.... original, funny, and deeply, deeply sad."


 -- Austin Pendleton (emails to author)

“J.B. Alexander is excellent as a transformed yet conflicted everyman.  He is wry, intelligent, sincere and engaging.  I enjoyed The Metamorphosis very much and recommend that you add it to your schedule.”

 -- Michael Calcott, Fringey Bits, May 24, 2014

“This refined, imaginative show will leave you intellectually stirred and philosophically fascinated....  Alexander truly is possessed by Kafka, and through this intellectually scintillating play, his possession will possess you too.”

-- Lucien Zell, Fringe Review, May 31, 2014

"A superior showing was given by J.B. Alexander as the prosperous Uncle Morty. Alexander captures the cosmopolitan dandy mystique of the era but pepper[s] it with the immigrant roots from where he came.  Cultured tone, great presence, he was a cool blast of AC on a hot day."  

-- Douglas N. Johnston, review of Awake & Sing!, Drama Queens, May 6, 2013

Kafka’s Belinda "starts out as a love letter to Prague... and turns into a globetrotting adventure of words and a reflection on life.... J.B. Alexander’s turn (or return, as he always starred in The Metamorphosis at last year’s Prague Fringe) as Franz Kafka is engrossing....  This is a solid piece of work."


-- André Crous, Prague Post, May 25, 2015

The Metamorphosis is a "50-minute monologue that never lets up.... ambiguity is built into every part of the performance, in a nod of the bowler hat to Franz K.”


 -- André Crous, Prague Post, May 26, 2014

The actors “have taken their dialect lessons seriously, and... the accents... ring true.  [T]he cast seems to take advantage of the different social classes that go with the accents to create their characters....  J.B. Alexander as Harry Dalton sounds more rural England than London Estuary.”

-- Jeff Myhre, review of Equus, NY Theatre Guide, December 18, 2013
