From Godspell Stage To Playgirl Centerfold

JESSE CUTLER has been a musician, composer, actor, producer, entrepreneur and even a Playgirl centerfold. He has performed with his bands and in the original cast of Godspell on Broadway, made records that made Billboard’s Top 100, formed his own companies and appeared on TV and radio and in national print. Born Louis Milo Gibaldi, by age 12 Jesse was surrounded by celebrity. Signed by Mercury Records in 1964, Jesse’s first band, the Young Executives, saw their single Everybody Do the Duck hit the Billboard Top 100 charts.

At charity fundraisers and private parties on Long Island , they played in the company of the Rolling Stones, Sammy Davis, Jr., Barbra Streisand, Anthony Newley, Joan Collins and the Beatles.

Now, after a decade-long respite from the glow of Hollywood , Jesse is riding a comeback. In his book, StarLust: The Price of Fame (Morgan James), he asks would-be celebrities and their parents, “Are you willing to pay the price?”

A cautionary tale fostered by his 40-plus years in show business, StarLust chronicles Jesse’s life from his beginnings in Brooklyn and formative years as a teen rock star, then on to Broadway where his work as part of the original cast of Godspell won him a Grammy Award. David Letterman’s bandleader, Paul Shaffer, wrote the foreword to the book.

“I wanted to share my experiences and help those who are on the edge of fame,” he says from his office in Orlando . “There are so many traps to avoid. But there’s also a great sense of accomplishment and reward once you do grab that brass ring and enter the spotlight.”
