About Gary

Basically I am a retired agency copywriter (old school), would be playwright/lyricist. My current projects are: Whisper of the Heart - small cast musical 2F/2M. Studio recordings of the songs are at woth.org. Vocals can be stripped for a low budget production or workshop; Tear Like Rain, a small cast, 2F/1M, play about a deranged megalomaniac (bi-polar) who was one of the most powerful political figures of his era, and who on occasion abrogated much of his authority and responsibility to surrogates who were not very nice people. This is not to imply the central figure in the play, Mao, was very nice. After all, 40+ million people died under his stewardship, or that of the Gang of Four. But as the play illustrates, he had his kinder, gentler side . In the current political climate, it seems somewhat topical.
