Falsettos' Daniel Boys

Daniel Boys is currently playing Marvin in Falsettos at The Other Palace, just around the corner from where he saw his first West End musical as a child, Starlight Express, at the Apollo Victoria.

After graduating from Guildford School of Acting, Daniel appeared in Rent, Sunset Boulevard and Grease before auditioning for the BBC’s Any Dream Will Do, the search for a man to play Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He made it through to the live show stage and was the seventh contestant to leave the programme.

Daniel went on to star in I Love You Because, at the Landor Theatre, before landing the leading role of Princeton and Rod in the West End production of Avenue Q.

Since then he’s performed in numerous concerts and appeared in shows including Ordinary Days, Peter Pan, Spamalot and Nativity! The Musical.

We had a conversation in a basement dressing room at The Other Palace where a giant inflatable unicorn was being stored.

Falsettos is running at The Other Palace until 23rd November 2019.
