Gary played evil villain Munro Murgatroyd in Bill Johnson’s “Gay ’90’s” classic Melodrama that inspired a generation of Saturday morning cartoons. Directed by Melinda Leuthold, the play opened May 6 at Loves Street Playhouse in Woodland, WA.
“Dirty Work at the Crossroads” tells in laughable style the tear jerking story of Nellie Lovelace, an innocent country girl. Munro, the viper (played by Gary), has a wife in Ida Rhinegold, belle of the New Haven Music Halls, but that does not prevent him from pursuing Nellie and tearing her from the arms of her dying mother (whom he has poisoned), played by Renee Faddis. Nor does it prevent him from driving Adam Oakhart, the blacksmith’s son, to drink, from blackmailing rich Mrs. Asterbilt, or from bewitching her daughter, Leonie.
