A darkly handsome stage and screen actor who is equally at home in drama, comedy or musicals, Matt McGrath began his career as a child performer and successfully negotiated the difficult transition to adult roles. The New York native started his career at age five when his piano teacher recommended him for the children's chorus of the New York City Opera. Over several seasons, McGrath appeared in such productions of "Madame Butterfly", "Faust" and "La Boheme" before landing his first role as a cabin boy in "Billy Budd". In 1979, he switched to musical comedy as the understudy for the role of John Darling in "Peter Pan", starring Sandy Duncan. When the national tour was launched, McGrath assumed the role.
