So a bit about me...My name is Waseem Alzer. My full name is Waseem Atef Arafat Salih Dias Alzer Foqahaa...that's always fun to say in a thick Arabic accent. I was born and raised in Eastern North Carolina. I grew up in an Arab-American home where I learned English at school, then came home to learn Arabic from my mom while my father worked towards the American Dream!
My hobbies include watching HGTV and vocally aiding the couple on my screen to choose the home with the better location, speaking in an Australian dialect, and laughing hysterically and maybe too loud. In college, I was the Producing Artistic Director of a student-run theatre company called 5th Street Players where WE got to choose the plays WE want to do and I LOVED IT and loved exploring the administrative and business side of theatre.
I love being a story-teller for many reasons, but I always revert to the simplest one of just enlightening the world/audience on something they didn't know before they stepped into the theatre. Sure I love entertaining---singing pop music, and serving a fun combination---but I hold so much value in the story telling of theatre; Honest, living, breathing human being interactions.
I am NYC-based, so let's grab a bagel.
