“There never was and there never will be an artist who knows their self and commits that self to the creation of musical storytelling in quite the same way as Ari Axelrod.”

Ari Axelrod is an actor, director, singer, and Jewish activist. He recently received the 2022 Bistro Award for Theatrical Peformance in Song for his show, “Ari’s Arias.” His multi-award winning show, “A Place For Us: A Celebration of Jewish Broadway” has seen multiple sold-out performances at the historic Birdland Jazz Club, one of which featured six-time Emmy & Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh, as well as sold out performances in St. Louis, Chicago, Boca Raton, Ann Arbor, and via Zoom during COVID. In 2020, he received a MAC Award nomination for Best Male Vocalist, and won the BroadwayWorld Award for Best Live Zoom Performance. Ari Axelrod’s first solo cabaret, “Taking the Wheel”, was directed by Tony Award winner Faith Prince, and music directed by multiple MAC Award winner Alex Rybeck, and has been performed in multiple cities around the country. Ari’s work as a director has been seen at Paper Mill Playhouse, Birdland, Feinstein’s/54 Below, The Green Room 42, and Don’t Tell Mama.
Recently, Ari was the recipient of The Jewish Week’s prestigious 36 Under 36 Award which “honors 36 noteworthy New Yorkers, all 36 years old or younger, who make New York — and its many Jewish communities — better. These entrepreneurs, young leaders, and changemakers bring remarkable energy and new ideas to religion, philanthropy, the arts, Jewish learning, campus life, social action, inclusion and justice.” When he’s not singing, acting, teaching, directing, or being an activist, Ari can be found cuddling with his dog Leo who is absolutely perfect in every way imaginable. Stay tuned for Ari’s first album, “Ari Axelrod: Live at Birdland” to be released this fall.
