The career of critically acclaimed and award-winning Broadway actor, singer, and concert performer Jason Danieley encompasses 30 years of originating roles in new musicals on and off Broadway and in regional theaters across the country (Knoxville, Floyd Collins, The Full Monty, Dream True, The Highest Yellow, Curtains, Some Lovers, Secondhand Lions, The Visit, Pretty Woman), singing around the world with major symphony orchestras (the Boston Pops, New York Pops, BBC Concert Orchestra, the New York, Czech, and Los Angeles philharmonics, and more), filmed performances on PBS (South Pacific, Carousel, Sondheim Birthday Celebration, He Said/She Said, Ring Them Bells: Music of Kander & Ebb), and cabaret performances across the nation. His collaboration as director on Lynn Ahrens: A Lyric Life for the “Lyrics & Lyricists” series at NYC’s 92nd St Y was hugely successful. During the height of the COVID pandemic, Danieley wrote and hosted several episodes of Stars in the House, a live-streamed web series supporting the Actor’s Fund, including a special episode to benefit the Cancer Support Community. In 2021 Danieley directed Rupert Holmes’s The Mystery of Edwin Drood at Northern Kentucky University and curated a Q&A with Holmes for the student body of NKU’s School of the Arts. He co-created, with Keith Lockhart, and directed the concert Remembering Stephen Sondheim for the Boston Pops at Tanglewood in August 2022. He recently directed a concert celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Ahrens and Flaherty writing for the American musical theater staged, to a sold-out house, at Classic Stage Company in New York City. Among his greatest artistic accomplishments, Danieley has co-created and directed many of the concerts he performed with his late wife, Broadway star, Marin Mazzie, including producing the albums Opposite You and Broadway & Beyond (also a video release) and the PBS performance of He Said/She Said. His numerous solo concerts—Jason Danieley & The Frontier Heroes (his band, which also produced an album), Romantic Notions, A Heart to Heart, Reflections, and Homecoming—have all received wide critical acclaim. Alongside his performing and directing, Danieley gives master classes in song interpretation for regional theaters and universities around the country.
