My name is Spero Pastos, Greek Orthodox, and I grew up in Chicago, Illinois. I attended Amundsen High School and Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago), where I studied English, theatre, and speech and worked as a union member with Equity and Musicians Unions. I appeared in several nightclubs—the Yorkshire Room, Dante’s, Embers, and the NYC Living Room—while playing the guitar and singing.
While in NYC, I worked off-Broadway for “Port Royale” in the Village. While in NYC, I appeared in “Oh Da, Poor Da, Mamma’s” with direction by George Sherman.
I wound up my stage career with two Regina Recordings: “Mountain Greenery, Pretty Boy, Blue Prelude” and “So Far.”
Book Work: “Pin-Up: The Tragedy of Betty Grable” to be found at Putnam’s in NYC.
I have been working as a schoolteacher (credentialed) in Los Angeles schools for twenty-three years.
