In 1993 native Angelino, Danny Bolero began trading coastlines while making his Broadway debut as Naphtali, one of Joseph's eleven brothers in the Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (cast recording).    In 2009, Danny returned to Broadway when he joined the company of Lin Manuel Miranda’s IN THE HEIGHTS.  It was during the Broadway run, that Danny auditioned and landed the principal role of Kevin Rosario for the 1st National tour of  IN THE HEIGHTS, which he later reprised on Broadway opposite the great Pricilla Lopez.


In early 2018, Danny made his Public Theater debut in a new musical by Quiara Alegria Hudes and Erin Mckeown, MISS YOU LIKE HELL, (cast recording)  originating the role of Manuel.  Two-time Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega as Beatriz, an undocumented immigrant on the verge of deportation.  Beatrice is a flawed Mom to troubled 16-year-old Olivia, Mother, and daughter have been living estranged from each 
other for years.  They embark on a road trip that crosses state lines.  Together they meet Americans of different backgrounds, shared dreams, and complicated truths.  A powerful show with vast heart and fierce humor.

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,

In late 2019, Danny got an audition to try out for a Neil Simon revival.  This could be a big opportunity for Danny, as it would mean his first non-musical on Broadway.   His first audition led to a callback which eventually led to him getting the part in a show that was to be directed by Tony-Award winner, John Benjamin Hickey.  An actor who’s work Danny has admired for long time.  It wasn’t until much later, when he learned the identity of the shows two main stars, Mathew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker.  Well it doesn't get more exciting than that.  So in early 2020, as Danny, was getting ready to head back to Broadway after a successful 3 week run in Boston.  On March 12th the day before the show was to preview,  the company was called to gather in the theater for a meeting.  It  was announced that Broadway would be shutting down due to the pandemic.  


But as they say in the industry, the show must go on, so on Feb. 25, 2022...New York audiences will be able to catch the show at the Hudson Theater, and it is returning with all the same players.
