SPECIAL EVENT | An Evening with Jason Alexander 

Before he went on to portray the neurotic George Costanza for nine seasons of "Seinfeld," Jason Alexander was already a well-regarded stage performer. He made his Broadway debut in the Stephen Sondheim musical, "Merrily We Roll Along," and went on to portray Tevye in "Fiddler on the Roof," and Pseudolus in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" — and in 1989, Alexander won a Tony for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his performance in "Jerome Robbins' Broadway." Yadda, yadda; following "Seinfeld's" end in 1998, Alexander pursued multiple projects on TV and film, and returned to the stage in 2003 for the Los Angeles production of "The Producers." The performer has since been busy with numerous projects, from stand-up comedy to film directing and operating as artistic director of Los Angeles' Reprise Theatre Company (which closed in 2013).

On Friday, October 17, Alexander will kick off the new "Eastman Presents" series with an evening of music, comedy, and improv at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. The performance begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25-$85. Esm.rochester.edu.

    Summer starts June 21, so with beautiful weather inevitable during the next few months, there's no reason to stay home. We say it every year, but it's always true: Western New York comes alive during the summer months.
