ACTOR, SINGER GALLAGHER is a stage and movie actor. He played the part of Danny Zuko in a touring production of Broadway’s Grease and he was in that great movie “American Beauty”, plus “The Idolmaker”, and “Sex, Lies and Videotape” – and dozens of other productions.

He was quoted as saying – “Everyone seems to mention my eyebrows (They are very bushy.) Gallagher also has plump lips. Nothing attracts girls like the combination of sexy lips and bushy eyebrows. Lucky him.

Gallagher appeared with Glenn Close in Stoppard’s “The real Thing”. He achieved more fame in Steve Soderbergh’s “Sex, Lies, and Videotape" (1989). He was also Sky Masterson in the ’92 Broadway Revival of Guys and Dolls.

He also released an Album (7 days in Memphis in 2005) on the Sony BMG label. It includes the studio recording of “Don’t Give Up On Me”.  There also is a video of his single “Still I Long For Your Kiss”. 

Gallagher is making his West Coast premiere of his acclaimed cabaret performance of “Songs and Stories”.  The talented veteran of stage, screen and film brings out many songs from the Great American Songbook as well as those wonderful Broadway shows and experiences in his career.  That’s why it titled “SONGS and STORIES.

Bay Area Cabaret Presents this one night evening, only at the Famed Fairmont Hotel Venetian Room at 950 Mason Street, atop Nob Hill. The date and time: Saturday, October 22, 20ll. Tickets are “Hot” and going fast. 

Gallagher weaves his stories and songs effortlessly. Believe me – this sleek evening is likely to linger with you long after you’ve left the magic of the Venetian Room.
