Who Am I?
WHO AM I?
Hi. My name is Jamison Daniels. I'm an Actor and Writer who loves to play characters that are often misunderstood or some might consider underdogs.
My favorite roles that I’ve played to date are Nicky/Trekkie Monster in Avenue Q, Charley in Merrily We Roll Along, and Edgar in Bat Boy.
When I was Sixteen, I was awarded a scholarship to train in musical theatre at Idyllwild Arts Academy in a quaint mountain town in Southern California. This led me to getting a scholarship to train in the BFA program for Musical Theatre at The Hartt School at The University of Hartford in West Hartford, CT.
Recently, I made my 54 Below debut playing the leader of an all gay boy band in The Other Direction. I also wrote the book to a new musical, Natasha and the Bass Line, a one night only theatrical roller coaster performed at The Triad in NYC.
I have big dreams and an even bigger heart. I'm very driven and I love to create my own work. It started in college when I co-founded The Sandbox Theatre Company, a non-profit organization, where I held the position of artistic director. We produced three full scale productions and five smaller events across the country, gave ten young writers the opportunity to see their work onstage, and we raised over $24,000.
Currently I’m in post-production for my own original web series, “So Ya Wanna Be A Broadway Star?” a new comedy following Micki Manuel Minnelli, a YouTube celebrity searching for Broadway stardom wherever he can find it. It will be premiering exclusively on BroadwayWorld.com. Stay tuned for updates!
A little over a year ago, I got married to the love of my life. My husband and I live in the Greater New York Area with our two rescue dogs Hunter and Kiefer who we spoil rotten.
One of my biggest goals in life is to use my production company as a platform to share stories that I believe are begging to be told. Whether these stories are my own or other artist's stories that I strongly believe in. I want to help shine a light on stories about characters who get pushed to the background, often stereotyped or worse, not represented at all. Anyone got a flashlight?
