Forbes called Gallant a "social media expert."[6] According to the Wall Street Journal, “since late 2009, Mr. Gallant has exploited expanding social-media tools to grow the cafe from a small, volunteer-led venue best known for weekly poetry events to a thriving arts center with partnerships across the city.”[7]

Education and Early Career[edit]

Gallant grew up in Rockville, MD and attended Sidwell Friends school in Washington, D.C. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 1998, Gallant moved to New York City and worked at talent agency ICM Artists. Gallant produced and directed a number of small theater productions in New York. He received a master's degree in arts administration from Columbia University, and subsequently began working as Director of Theater Programming at the 92nd Street Y's Makor Center.[8]

While at Makor, Gallant curated performances, readings and workshops of numerous plays and musicals. He created the Festival of 'Wrights,[9] a theater series that premiered new work by such artists as Mark O'Donnell, Warren Leight and Craig Lucas and included readings featuring David Strathairn, Dan Hedaya, Paul Rudd, Martha Plimpton and other notable performers.[10] He also moderated on-stage interviews featuring Tony Kushner, Wendy Wasserstein, Norman Mailer, Peter Falk, Neil LaBute, Chazz Palminteri, Liz Swados and other artists.[11][12][13][14]

Gallant curated theater and talk events and taught classes at the 92nd Street Y's downtown Manhattan venue, 92YTribeca.[15][16]

In 2007, Gallant produced and directed Five Story Walkup, a four-week benefit for the 13th Street Repertory Theatre; the show included premier stagings of short plays and monologues by Neil LaBute, John Guare, Quincy Long, Clay McLeod Chapman, Laura Shaine Cunningham and Daniel F. Levin.,[17][18] The monologues and plays that constitute "Five Story Walkup" were published in the anthology THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT PLAYS 2007-2008 by Applause Books in August 2009.[19] In 2010, Gallant produced Seven Card Draw, a benefit for Dixon Place; this show featured premier stagings of short dramatic works by LaBute, Guare and the other authors who had contributed to Five Story Walkup, as well as a performance by Piper Perabo.[20] The monologues and plays that constitute "Seven Card Draw" were published in the anthology THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT PLAYS 2009-2010 by Applause Books in August 2011.[21] In 2014, Gallant produced "Nine Signs of the Times", a benefit for the Nuyorican Poets Cafe; this show featured premier stagings of short works by LaBute, Guare, Caridad Svich, Halley Feiffer, and the other authors who had contributed to "Five Story Walkup" and "Seven Card Draw".[22] The dramatic works featured in "Nine Signs of the Times" were subsequently published in the anthology THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT PLAYS 2013-2014 by Applause Books in June 2015.[23]

Between 2007-2008, Gallant produced several off-Broadway plays and musicals at the DR2 Theatre in Union Square, including the off-Broadway premiere of David Brandes' and Joseph Telushkin's play The Quarrel (based on their 1991 film of the same name)[24] and the musical Ogden Nash's The Tales of Custard the Dragon (by Bradford W. Ross and Danny Whitman).[25]

Gallant also co-produced the long-running rock musicals Soul Searching and Generations,[26] and he curated and hosted the multi-venue performance/reading series Acoustic Theater.[27]

At the Nuyorican Poets Cafe[edit]

In spring of 2008, Gallant was appointed as the new executive director of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, a renowned multi-arts venue located in Manhattan's east village.[28] Gallant joined the Cafe just before its 35th Anniversary Celebration, a concert event at Manhattan's Town Hall.[29][30]

Since Gallant's appointment, the Cafe's operating budget has more than doubled, as has event attendance.[31] Gallant's management efforts have focused on modernizing and expanding the operations of the Cafe while maintaining its artistic and cultural traditions.[32][33][34]

Under Gallant's leadership, the Cafe has raised more than $10 million in capital funding; the funds will be used to renovate the Cafe's East Village building.[35][36][37]

Gallant has also significantly expanded the Cafe’s online presence. According to the Wall Street Journal, “since late 2009, Mr. Gallant has exploited expanding social-media tools to grow the cafe from a small, volunteer-led venue best known for weekly poetry events to a thriving arts center with partnerships across the city. Through strategic use of Facebook, Twitter and a $10,000-per-month grant from Google, he said he has boosted online ticket sales by 30% and web traffic by 40%, and doubled the number of events from around one per evening to two or more.” [38]

Gallant lectures and consults in the fields of institutional marketing, social media and arts technology.[39][40][41] He has delivered lectures and speeches about these topics for corporate, non-profit and educational organizations including the Kennedy Center, BAM, Opera America, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Google, Chase, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Foursquare, the Devos Institute, Columbia University, NYU, Fourth Arts Block and other entities. [42][43][44][45][46][47]

In Popular Media[edit]

Gallant is regularly quoted in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times and other periodicals. His quotes usually appear in articles about the contemporary poetry scene,[48][49][50][51] the changing nature of New York City’s East Village,[52] [53][54][55][56] popular poets[57][58][59][60] and social media.[61][62] He has also written opinion pieces and reviews for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, Time Out New York and other media outlets.[63][64][65]

Among the notable articles that feature his quotes are a 2016 Wall Street Journal article about the Cafe's expansion[66] and two 2015 New York Times articles, one about the cultural resurgence of snapping as a form of audience appreciation and another about spoken word programs that engage people who are serving time.[67][68] In both a 2017 Wall Street Journal article and a 2017 feature from NPR, Gallant discusses the political nature of many performances at the Cafe.[69][70] In a 2017 New York Times article about housing and rent issues in New York City, Gallant explains how short-term housing arrangements helped facilitate the early stages of his arts career.[71] In New York (magazine)'s 2016 list of "Reasons to Love New York", Gallant is quoted as follows, about the Cafe's use of grant funds to expand cultural offerings: “Success is often described as turning art into numbers, but the reverse of turning numbers into art is its own craft.” [72]

Gallant has appeared on several TV shows. In 2013, he was featured in an episode of MTV's reality series "Washington Heights".[73] He appeared in an NBC news segment about Alphabet City in 2012.[74] He has appeared on NY1 multiple times, most notably in interviews broadcast in 2012, 2013 and 2014.[75][76][77] Gallant also appeared on the public affairs TV show Chasing News in 2016.[1][78]

In January 2018, the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed article by Gallant; the article examined the outsized cultural and economic power of Facebook’s algorithms.[89]
