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...
We have one more week of performing this very fun and touching play at CRT. Reviews so far have been very positive:
"I loved this show...the actors are superb! The audience practically bounded to its feet with a spontaneous standing ovation at the end of Wednesday's opener."
-Katie Keyser, The Cortland Standard
"Cortland Rep's 'Miracle on south Division Street' balances truth and belief...with much humor, sarcasm, and realistic verbal encounters among the four characters..."

This week saw a quick trip out to Port Washington for an afternoon industrial shoot with the awesome folk at ADM Productions.
On Monday I'll be recording a very fun VO before flying off to Vancouver for a long-awaited VACATION!
I'm still smiling after yesterday's historic Supreme Court decision. #LoveWins
Happy summer friends. x
Last week I had the pleasure of spending two days on set playing an 1890's pioneer wife for an as-yet untitled Historical Feuds series.
Later in the week I played a courtroom judge in an episode of The Perfect Murder, currently airing on Investigation Discovery.
"Leah Gabriel, as Roderigo, provides some delightful comic relief, though her character’s ultimate end is just as powerful as the others’. " -Queens Gazette
"Gabriel is at once hilarious and tragic as the bumbling Roderigo" -Off Off Online
"Memorable turns from Leah Gabriel's perfectly pitiable Roderigo and Emily Trask's surprisingly balanced Desdemona, are very welcome." -New York Theatre Review
"It is said that your life passes before you at the moment of death, but in Gabriel's "O damned Iago," it is the 20 years of wisdom to come that she suddenly glimpses as her light flickers out." -Shakespeareances.com
"Abbey Siegworth as Cassio and Leah Gabriel as Roderigo are at their best in their fateful fight scene." -Queens Courier
"The three actresses playing the air hostesses stamp their own unique identities...Leah Gabriel’s Gretchen has a funny exchange when she verbally assaults Robert with the zeal of a Berlin district attorney."
- Bill DeLapp, Syracuse New Times (read the full review here)
"The actors reigned supreme...[the three women] are all outrageous, gorgeous...Gretchen flaunted her body with her presence and her power cape, like a Bat Woman"
- Katie Keyser Hall, Cortland Standard
"[the] three gorgeous women...all have trim builds and vivacious, expressive features...the actors do a beguiling job of making the most preposterous events seem inevitable."
