ABOUT

 

Danielle has been a performer and storyteller from the time she could walk. Whether it was making up plays in the backyard with her cousins, writing poetry and short stories, or toddling around the house in a clown costume (yes, there is photo evidence), she always felt drawn to the arts.

As a teenager, she performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and won a Teeny Award for excellence in high school theatre.

She attended Wagner College, graduating in 2018 with a degree in Theatre Performance and English.

Exactly a week after her college graduation, she booked a dream job: the national tour of the recent Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher! She got to perform in 30 major cities across the country, including Los Angeles and Chicago.

In addition to musical theatre, Danielle has a love for the classics, especially Shakespeare. She trained as an apprentice at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, played Hero in Much Ado About Nothing with Northeast Stage on Long Island, and enjoys working with Bard City here in NYC.

Danielle is also a comedy nerd! She loves improv, and her weekend plans always involve watching Saturday Night Live. Her personal sketch comedy heroes are Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader.

In her spare time, Danielle loves baking, writing, and hanging out with her family on Long Island.
