Biography

This handsome, dark-haired actor first made a mark Off-Broadway. David Alan Basche was raised in West Hartford, Connecticut and after graduating from Boston's Emerson College went on to find employment in regional theaters. He met his wife, actress Alysia Reiner, when they played opposite one another in "Twelfth Night" at the White River Theater Festival in Vermont in 1992. Basche returned to his hometown for a featured role in the Hartford Stage production of "A Dybbuk" in 1995 but really began to garner notice co-starring with Eli Wallach in the two-character "Visiting Mr. Green". In Jeff Baron's play which premiered at Florida's Coconut Grove Playhouse in 1997 and later transferred to the Union Square Theatre in NYC, the actor was cast as Ross Gardiner, a self-centered yuppie sentenced to six months of community service assisting the elderly man he knock down while driving recklessly. Basche and Wallach made a terrific team and impressed both critics and audiences. Basche followed up with an impressive performance as an actor desperate for a break who discovers a secret involving his wife and his best friend in David Marshall Grant's smartly-observed Off-Broadway hit "Snakebit" (1998)
