On the Stage, Behind the Scenes and In the Audience
Jeff Bolton started his theatrical career in 1950 at the age of eleven appearing in Milton Berle’s Texaco Star Theatre. He was an understudy in the Broadway productions of Maxwell Anderson’s Barefoot in Athens, and The Climate of Eden directed by Moss Hart. After years of summer stock, over sixty television appearances, stints at Tamiment, and Green Mansion, and twenty weeks as the production dancer at the infamous Copacabana, he joined the original cast of Gypsy with Ethel Merman. He played the juvenile lead as Tulsa both in New York and the National tour.
At the age of 25, Jeff made a career change to Wall Street, joining Merrill Lynch. He moved on to Oppenheimer and Company, a partner at Furman Selz, and joined Neuberger Berman in 1987. He became a partner in 1995 and has gone on to build a highly regarded investment management business, aptly titled The Bolton Group.
Jeff is married to Tina Faye, a former Broadway dancer. Tina was a Peter Gennaro Dancer, has six Broadway credits, and appeared regularly on The Ed Sullivan Show. Tina is currently a trustee of The Palm Beach Drama Works. Jeff has been a trustee of Actor’s Fund since 1995, a trustee of Adelphi University, and Save Venice.
