Gianni Palmarini is an NYC based actor, singer and musician by way of Philadelphia, PA, where he was born and raised (Go Phils!). Gianni’s love for the theatre began at the age of 5, when his parents took him to see the Broadway revival of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”… He was hooked. From then on, when he wasn’t in rehearsals for a musical, choral ensemble or band set, Gianni was studying music theory, cantoring a wedding or perfecting his latest Billy Joel tune on the piano. He took his talents to North Carolina, where he recently earned his BFA in Music Theatre from Elon University!
An avid singer, pianist, and saxophonist, Gianni is most grateful for his time spent on numerous stages around the country. Most recently, Gianni was seen as the saxophone-playing Jimmy Campbell in just the second regional production of the Tony-Award winning musical BANDSTAND at The Phoenix Theatre Company in Phoenix, Arizona. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
When not performing, you can find Gianni riding his bike, making a cup of Aeropress coffee, or listening to the newest episode of “This American Life.”
Gianni is a proud first generation American and above all, has a passion for people and building strong relationships, a skill he inherited from his Italian immigrant father. He hopes to create meaningful work and use his skills and talent to tell powerful stories. Cheers!
