The offspring of a big band singer and a trombonist, Gary developed a passion for music at age three, when he discovered that he could play "Lean On Me" by utilizing the top four white keys of the piano. At age ten, he was bitten by the theatre bug after seeing his older brother star as Curly in a community theatre production of OKLAHOMA! Sometime during college he put the two together, and has been working as a musical director (AVENUE Q, THE FANTASTICKS, CHICAGO CITY LIMITS, THE RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR in Detroit and L.A.), conductor (URINETOWN, NUNSENSE, TICK,TICK, BOOM!), and pianist (FOSSE, HAIRSPRAY, VICTOR/VICTORIA) for theatre ever since. He has also toured with ANNIE and JEKYLL & HYDE. Gary composed the incidental music for AVENUE Q, and contributed one song to Martin Charnin’s THE-NEXT-TO-THE-LAST REVUE. He is the co-composer of ALTAR BOYZ, which marks his Off-Broadway composing debut.
