Danny Lockin

1943 - 1977

Danny Lockin was born in Hawaii in 1943, and was raised in Omaha, Nebraska. He was an exceptional dancer who started dancing professionally at age eight. He appeared in the film Gypsy (1962) as Gerry. He appeared on Broadway in the 1964 revival of "West Side Story", and in other shows such as "The Sound of Music", "The Music Man" and "Take Me Along". He played the prominent supporting role of Barnaby in a touring stage production of producer David Merrick's Broadway smash "Hello, Dolly!" and soon caught the eye of Gene Kelly, who cast him in the film version in December 1967. After completion of filming on Hello, Dolly! (1969), Danny played the role of Barnaby on the Broadway stage with Ethel Merman starring in the lead. He recorded a record album, and for several years in the 1970s, taught dance at his mother's studio in Orange County, California. The life of this wonderful and multi-talented man was tragically cut short when he was brutally murdered in 1977.
