Danny Gurwin Biography

Originally from Southfield, MI, Danny has been performing on and off-Broadway for the last 11 years. He made his New York debut playing the Nurse in the off-Broadway hit SHAKESPEARE'S R & J, a 4-man re-telling of the Tragedy of Romeo & Juliet. Other off-Broadway credits include THE THING ABOUT MEN, THE MOST FABULOUS STORY EVER TOLD, Manhattan Theatre Club's CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS, as well as the original companies of KUNI-LEML, A MAJORITY OF ONE with Phyllis Newman, A NEW BRAIN at Lincoln Center and FORBIDDEN BROADWAY 2001: A SPOOF ODYSSEY.

On Broadway, Danny made his debut as Hal in THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL. He also stood stark naked onstage for over 500 performances as Malcolm in THE FULL MONTY. Other Broadway appearances include URINETOWN, Laurie in the musical adaptation of the classic LITTLE WOMEN, and most recently the Encores! revival of KISMET as the all-mighty Caliph. Danny also played Henrik in the New York City Opera's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, a role he recreated later at the Los Angeles Opera. He originated the same role in the Kennedy Center's Sondheim Celebration production, culminating in an all-star concert at Avery Fisher Hall.

Numerous recordings and regional productions include plays and musicals at the Philadelphia, Delaware, Source, and Pioneer Theatre Companies, as well as the La Jolla Playhouse, Muny and McCarter Theatres, Sacramento Music Circus, Moonlight Amphitheatre, the Great Lakes Theatre Festival, the Geffen and La Jolla Playhouses as well as the O'Neill Theatre Center and Sundance Theatre Lab. Danny has also performed at the Library of Congress, twice with Chicago's Grant Park Symphony, the New Haven Symphony and guest starred on NBC's "Law & Order" and recently on ABC's "Desperate Housewives". As a guest artist Danny has taught at the UCLA, Western Michigan University, Youngstown University, the Las Vegas High School of Performing Arts, the Showchoir Camps of America, and is currently on the faculty of AMDA in Los Angeles. Danny holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University of Michigan.
