Aaron J. Albano discovered his love for performing as any first-generation Filipino boy would: singing solos in church. A San Jose, CA native, Aaron cultivated that love by joining his local children's theater (Children's Musical Theatre of San Jose), taking class at his local dance studio (Marie Stinnett Dance Studio), and attending the local performing arts magnet high school (Abraham Lincoln High School). That love grew to an aspiring career path, which led him to the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, OH, where he majored in musical theatre.
Upon leaving school, Aaron immediately moved to New York City, where luckily he was quickly cast in his first Broadway show Bombay Dreams at the Broadway Theatre, in the ensemble and understudying the lead role of Akaash. Since then, Aaron has been seen on the Great White Way in eight Broadway shows, including the closing company of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee as Chip Tolentino, and the original company of Newsies where he originated the role of Finch.
Aaron happily resides in Sunnyside, NY, with his dog Bandit.
