Love Out Loud for John Bolton

John Bolton recently completed a run of over 500 performances as the villainous drama critic in Kander and Ebb’s Curtains where he also played the starring role of Lt. Frank Cioffi during David Hyde Pierce’s vacation. Also on Broadway: original cast of the Tony Award-winning musicals Spamalot (often performing the role of King Arthur), Contact and Titanic, and in the hit revivals of Damn Yankees and How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (as Finch opposite Sarah Jessica Parker). He was featured in the acclaimed New York benefit concerts of Chess, Funny Girl, Busker Alley and the Grammy-nominated Dreamgirls. He recently sang for 104-year-old Zeigfeld Girl Doris Eaton Travis on stage at Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre.

He starred Off-Broadway in Five Course Love at the Minetta Lane and in John Bucchino’s It’s Only Life directed by Daisy Prince. He played Rooster in the 20th Anniversary Production of Annie (with Nell Carter) and Will Parker in the European Tour of Oklahoma!

He currently plays District Attorney John Summerhill on ABC’s All My Children and many Broadway-related appearances on all of the major network talk and morning shows. Mister Bolton has a BA in Journalism, but he left writing for the theatre because he wanted something steady. While that may not exactly describe the state of acting jobs, it was a great choice for this talented in that it keeps him in view. He has now joined Bacharach to the Future and those in attendance will get to appreciate the talent that is John Bolton.
