I'm thrilled to be making my Great River Shakespeare Festival debut this summer as Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Directed by the delightful and brilliant Beth Gardiner, it is sure to be a fun and wild ride. It will be my first visit to Minnesota and I'm looking forward to spending time in the lovely city of Winona, on the banks of the Mississippi River.
I'm thrilled to step back on the Titan stage and take on the title role in this new adaptation of Euripides' tragedy. We are doing a VERY limited run at the Queens Theatre Feb 16-25! Book tickets here.
DIRECTIONS TO QUEENS THEATRE (google maps):
Allow extra travel time, it is a 15 MINUTE WALK from the subway!
- Take the 7 train to Mets-Willets Point (2nd last stop).
- Walk along the boardwalk away from Citi Field, but towards the tennis stadium.
- At the park, take the wide avenue to your right, all the way to the giant globe. Go around the globe (Queens Museum will be on your right), the Queens Theatre is on the opposite side, underneath the retro-futuristic towers.
- There is also a SHUTTLE BUS to the theatre from the subway (go down to street level) every 10 minutes, starting 1 hour prior to curtain.
We four are sweating up a storm at Cortland Repertory Theatre for one more week! I'm having a blast and my three brilliant cast mates are absolute magic every night.
We also had a lovely review from Syracuse.com:
"Gabriel plays the icy Hitchcock blonde with style and verve, showing as much leg as possible in an impossibly tight short skirt while maintaining dignity and modesty. An antidote to the summer movie blockbuster ... "The 39 Steps" is a reassuring return to the roots of theater: spare, simple and fun."
Here we are at opening with director Dustin Charles. I couldn't have asked for a finer team of delightful, talented folk.
I'm thrilled to make my Philadelphia debut with Quintessence Theatre Group in October! I'll be playing Yvette in Mother Courage and her Children with this fantastic company whose work I've been admiring for some time. Grab your tickets here and enjoy a weekend (and a cheesesteak) in Philly! Oct 12 - Nov 6, 2016.
I haven't been in a musical for...years...so to jump back on the horse with, in my opinion, one of the greatest theatrical masterpieces of all time, well it's exciting and scary all at once. I'm playing the Beggar Woman! Get tickets HERE.
This one was a lot of fun to shoot with the fantastic team at Sleek Machine!
We're already two weeks into rehearsal for The Good Girl - the US premiere of Emilie Collyer's award winning Australian play at 59E59 Theaters. It's a delight to work with fellow Circle In The Square alum Giacomo Baessato and incredible director Adam Fitzgerald.

"The entire cast is hilarious and unpredictable ... Leah Gabriel is the perfect Doreen" - Stage Buddy
"Like most productions of Tartuffe, the breakout character is Doreen. Leah Gabriel as the Australian maid brings the witty and dry humor that is unlike any other character. Gabriel's Doreen is truly the glue that keeps the family and show together." - Theater In The Now
"The voice of sanity in this household is that of the housekeeper, Doreen. Leah Gabriel is very engaging in this role – funny and a little seditious. You feel for her as she pulls the one or another inept family member back from the brink." - Front Row Center
"Tartuffe is blessed with an excellent ensemble. Not a single cast member misses a mark." - New York Theatre Review
"Beth Gardiner directs an impeccable ensemble of actors ... every actor in this production shines." - Theater Pizzazz
This one is going to be raucous, hilarious, boozy FUN:
Love your country. Hard. Three Day Hangover is jumping into politics and the candidate to watch is this November is Tartuffe. We’re re-imagining Molière’s searing comedy of hypocrites and heathens for our modern age, and there's no better setting for farce and hilarity than a U.S. Senate race.

I'm very excited to be part of the first reading in an epic three-year collaboration between Titan Theatre Company and Queens Library to bring staged readings of Shakespeare's entire canon to libraries across Queens.
You might hear the sound of my voice coming from your television...
