Native Angelino Danny Bolero has been trading coastlines since 1993 when he made 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.
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.
Early this year, Danny made his Public Theater debut in a new musical by Quiara Alegria Hudes and Erin Mckeown, MISS YOU LIKE HELL. Two-time Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega is Beatriz, and an undocumented immigrant on the verge of deportation. Beatrice is 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, stagebuddy.com
LOW TIDE, starring Jaeden Lieberher, (IT, ST VINCENT). Point Pleasant, NJ is the backdrop of this coming of age story that follows a group of friends during the hot and hazy summers of vacation. Danny plays Javier, a kind migrant worker who befriends the the young Lieberher. LOW TIDE is about youth, the infinite summer nights, the first kisses, first beers, first fights that stirs with the undercurrent of danger and adventure, a film described as part GOONIES, STAND BY ME, and THE OUTSIDERS.
