Being tagged as the first immigration musical, Danny plays Manuel, a widowed tamales seller. He has the touch of a poet, a great listener and connoisseur of life's simple pleasures. “The beautiful “Tamales” sung by Danny Bolero’s Manuel, as he recounts his life with his late wife seen through their preparation of the title dish, is a little gem that could warrant a musical of its own. Hudes’ sensual lyrics and McKeown’s unintrusive score transported me to being five years old in my great-grandmother’s kitchen.” Jose Solis, stagebuddy.com
