New and undiscovered gems

An avid champion of new works, Gurgol had a real passion for new and undiscovered gems. New musicals were a cornerstone of his mission as Artistic Director of Kalliope Stage, directing five regional premieres, as well as the world premiere of Coming to America.

Some of his biggest box office successes were 'under-loved' musicals he plucked from the past and charged with excitement. His 2007 production of Dear World was hailed by critics as the ideal production.
