Dan Smeriglio

Dan is a proud Minnesotan! He received a BFA in Acting from the Theatre School at DePaul University and has made Chicago his home ever since. Currently he is playing Nicky/Bad Idea Bear in Mercury Theater's hit production of Avenue Q, which has been claimed to be "Better than Broadway" by the Sun-Times. Recently, you might have seen him playing the role of Piggy in the production of Lord of The Flies at Steppenwolf Theatre Company (SYA), directed by Halena Kays (Artistic Director of The Hypocrites). Other favorite productions include The Whole World Is Watching with Dog and Pony Theatre Company, directed by Devon de Mayo and Dietrich Gray. He has also been fortunate enough to gain quite a bit of film, commercial and voice-over experience since signing with Gray Talent Group.

Dan looks forward to making a splash in Chicago and beyond. He is considered to be both a momma's boy and the life of the party. He possesses above par bowling skills, a knack for singing and a vast knowledge of all things sports!
