Hey there! I'm

James Silverstein


""Welcome to my house."

-Flo Rida

a long island boy with a big apple dream...

My earliest memories date back to five year old James incessantly craving the center of attention at any and every chance he could get. Whether he was stealing the karaoke mic away from the rest of the party guests (only to mumble the lyrics to a song he probably had never even heard before), or doing a full-out performance of "Complicated" by Avril Lavigne for his parents in the living room (and asking them if he was good enough to be on American Idol without taking "no" for an answer), little James was ALWAYS giving 110%.

As early as third grade, my parents picked up on the many musical cues and put me in choir at school. In the summer before sixth grade, my best friend at the time convinced me to join a recreational theater program where I sang "Close Every Door" from Joseph... (how dark), which somehow turned me onto wanting to do this for the rest of my life. From there on out, I skyrocketed, taking advantage of every performance opportunity that I could get, all while dreaming of the day I'd leave Long Island behind and say hello to the Big Apple itself.

The year is 2020: I'm living the dream in Queens and proud to say I graduated from the Molloy College/CAP21 program with a BFA in Musical Theatre during a global pandemic. In the meantime, you can most likely find me obsessing over sugary cereals, cuddled up watching a good scary movie, or drinking Starbucks.

Dear World, here I come!
