Gaby Alter makes his 54 Below debut fresh from the Second Stage production of his musical Nobody Loves You, where it was both a New York Times and Time Out NY Critics’ Pick, and was dubbed “The Best Musical of 2012” by the Wall Street Journal. A songsmith with a pop/folk sensibility and a penchant for dramatic storytelling, Gaby will be premiering a collection of new songs, along with numbers from Nobody Loves You, with a group of favorite Broadway and off-Broadway actors. His music will make you laugh, giggle, possibly want to cry (or at least get kind of misty-eyed), and remain stuck in your head for several months after.

Gaby is a Jonathan Larson Grant recipient and winner of both the San Diego and San Francisco Theater Critics’ Circle Awards, the NYC Fringe Songwriting Award and an ASCAP Plus Award. His musicals include Band Geeks (Goodspeed Musicals, Human Race Theater), 29 (NYU/Steinhardt), and contributions to the revue Stars of David (Daryl Roth Productions), alongside such writers as Jeanine Tesori, Alan & Marilyn Bergman and Maltby & Shire. He and collaborator Itamar Moses wrote the song “The Frigate That Flies” for the upcoming Disney film Tinkerbell and The Pirate Fairy starring Christina Hendricks.
