About Gavriel Savit

After graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Musical Theatre, Gavriel Savit moved to New York to launch his performing career with shows at places like the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, Goodspeed Musicals in Connecticut, City Center’s Encores! series, the Westside Theatre, Off-Broadway, and eventually Broadway (here’s a full theatrical resume that gives a more complete listing).

Like many actors, Gavriel also had some unstructured time, which he spent reading: Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, Yann Martel’s Life of Pi, Adam Levin’s The Instructions, Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and the stories of Jorge Luis Borges, amongst others.
He found it all terribly inspiring.

Gavriel had an idea and he had a computer, so he sat down and he started to write. His first novel, Anna and the Swallow Man, was published by Knopf’s Books for Young Readers division on January 26th, 2016.

Gavriel continues to perform in the theatre, and he’s got a few different writing projects he’s working on, too. He won’t tell you about them, even if you ask, but if you like ambiguity, you can check out the works-in-progress section of this website for some weird, tantalizing flavor.
