Gregory wrote and produced plays and musicals for his students, nurturing their creative talents to become successful working professionals. He became a full-time actor and performer soon after landing the lead role in the critically acclaimed stage play The Jackie Wilson Story (which had a three-year run of sold out performances) at the Black Ensemble Theatre in Chicago. Gregory has since performed all over the world in iconic roles on stage and on screen.
