SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — He’s best known for is role as high-strong George Costanza on Seinfeld, but before that show, Jason Alexander was a theater guy.

Now, Alexander is ready to share his talents with audiences in Syracuse as a director.

Alexander will helm the musical “The Last Five Years,” with his own new twists, including two additional actors to the original plot.

He opened up about the show, his career and his early love for the theater.

“I guess the first kind of illusion I ever first thought I might like to do is magic, and I thought I was going to be a fantastic magician. I’m a terrible magician. But I love magic and when I realized as a teenager that the theatre is a giant illusion, I thought, that’s an illusion I think I can invest in,” Alexander said.

“The Last Five Years” runs May 29th through June 16th at Syracuse Stage.
