Danny Bolero: 
They Call Me Cuban Pete
The Music and Genius of Desi Arnaz

Back by Popular Demand

After a standing ovation and a packed house for the performance of “They Call Me Cuban Pete, The Music and Genius of Desi Arnaz '' by Danny Bolero.  The show makes a return to Don’t Tell Mama on June 20th.  Last April audiences were left emotionally uplifted by Bolero’s performance that had them crying, laughing and shouting for more.  Directed by Madeline McCray, with musical direction by Drew Wutke, Bolero talks about Arnaz's rise in the entertainment industry. As Arnaz,  Bolero reminisces about his life and how he was able to not only star in his own show that remains a main staple of American culture today, but also change the way television shows are directed and produced. Bolero takes us on a journey of what Arnaz experienced in his life -- from the Arnaz family losing everything in the 1933 Cuban revolution to his musical career, to Broadway, then meeting Lucille Ball and making it in Hollywood. Bolero captures the challenges Arnaz faced singing his songs that made him famous including the endearing “I Love Lucy” theme song. 

Actor, singer, and writer Danny Bolero currently performs in Neil Simon's “Plaza Suite” with Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker, which runs through July 2022. In addition, he can be heard as the voice of Abuelo in the PBS Kids animated series, "Alma's Way." Bolero made his Broadway debut in Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's 93 revival of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'' and appeared in Broadway's “In the Heights.”
