Actor, Musician, Circus Artist

Cabaret (emcee)

*Winner of best leading actor: LA Drama Critics Circle Awards, Robby Awards, SCENIES, Sage Awards

*Nominated for seven Ovation Awards including Best Production of a Musical and Best Director

"Alex Nee is the dirtiest Emcee in recent memory." — Musicals in LA

"an emcee who is seductive, slightly ominous and almost magical. As portrayed by Alex Nee, he seems to embody the Weimar Republic in its death gasps, his breathtakingly inventive performances turning flippantly angry and his behavior growing zombie-like as things deteriorate." — LA Times

"Nee is in your face, scary and thoroughly engaging, making the Emcee every inch his own creation." — Broadway World Los Angeles

"If there’s a standout in the cast, it’s Mr. Nee, whose burning eyes and slinky presence insinuate themselves into the audience’s consciousness whenever he’s onstage. With ferocious energy, he belts out his numbers, but perhaps the most haunting moments are when he himself falls silent... Nee’s performance doesn’t ask us to like him, only to listen to him – and that’s just what’s needed here." — Los Angeles Post

"led by the sexy, sensational, and fear-inducing Emcee (Alex Nee who shines like a superstar in the role)" — Culver City News

Alex Nee is superb. Nee is able to physically and emotionally represent this multifaceted character in everything he does—all his cabaret songs are at the surface merry and amusing, but there’s also bitter irony in these moments.” — Tin Pan L.A.

"His playful dominance and sexy piercing glances, coupled with smiling eyes that mask his true intentions, make him, often at one and the same time, both loathsome and wickedly charming." — Stage and Cinema

"Alex Nee is astounding as the Emcee — the range of expression he relays with his eyes alone is incredible. Most of the time, while his face and body are animated, his eyes remain shut-off, dead. But then, in a few specific, harrowing moments, he lets the audience in, lets us see the aching humanity inside." — Stage Raw

Death of a Salesman (Happy)

“The fluid new score by Barry G. Funderburg complements Joseph Hanreddy’s propulsive direction perfectly, and the fine cast comes together in a cascading fugue of contrapuntal voices to create the mystical “single chord” of Miller’s imagination… Alex Nee picks up on the subtleties in his portrayal of Hap, the shallow younger brother who sees no need to deviate from the salesman’s formula for life that has proved to be so deadly to his dad.” — Santa Barbara Independent

South Pacific (Lt. Joseph Cable)

"Nee’s Joe Cable has a darkness and edge that turns a role too often blandly played into a troubled young man you won’t soon forget.” — Stage Scene LA

“Nee’s tortured delivery of “You’ve Got to be Carefully Taught” masterfully evokes the self-loathing awareness of racism that made the song so controversial in its time and remains so tragically accurate to this day.” — LA Times

“[Nee and Yun] have a charismatic, winsome, even slightly contemporary quality that makes them very relatable.” — LA Splash

Romeo and Juliet: Love is a Battlefied Vol. 2 (Romeo)

"Romeo and Juliet receive powerhouse vocal performances fueled with totally uninhibited and intense emotions from Alex Nee and Ashley Argota. Nee and Argota nail their duet of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" in their balcony seduction scene. With their combustible chemistry so off the charts, their version of Pat Benatar's "Love is a Battlefield" so vividly, so easily express their realization of their doomed relationship. Their death scene solos of Benatar's "We Belong" will rip your heart out with both their individual rawness." — Broadway World Los Angeles

"The consistently solid Alex Nee portrays a confident, but not cocky Romeo. He offers a charming, rather sophisticated interpretation of the character, even handling the daunting task of covering Bowie’s Heroes with ease." — Starry Constellation Magazine

"Romeo (a devastatingly hot Alex Nee)" — Stage and Cinema

"singing is rich and acting laudably honest." — Chicago Tribune

"Nee gives effective voice to loss and pain." — Orange County Register

*South Coast Rep production is the winner of four 2017 Broadwayworld Los Angeles awards including Best Featured Actor in a Musical and Best Musical.

"The standout support performance of the night was Alex Nee's portrayal of Andrej... His quiet pain and perseverance radiated across the huge theatre and connected with the audience." — The New Orleans Advocate

"lithe and dazzling" — SF Gate

"Particularly wonderful in smaller roles and in the background wall of sound are Cassidy Stirtz and Alex Nee as Czech friends"— LA Times

"adorable in his vacillation between optimism and despair" — Austin 360

american idiot (Johnny)

*Winner of Award for Best Regional Production

"Nee is a talented, handsome, hugely promising young fellow" — Chicago Tribune

"Alex Nee in particular is just stunning" — Clique Clack
