Monday October 5th at 5.30pm I'll be reading Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing.  For the rest of the 2015 schedule, click here and read more at broadwayworld.com .

Miracle on South Division Street at Cortland Repertory Theatre

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..."

- Tony Curulla, read the full review at Syracuse.com.

Leah Gabriel as Beverly in CRT's Miracle on South Division Street

Green screen, VO & Vancouver, oh my!

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!

Then I'm back for my third summer at Cortland Rep to play Beverly in Miracle on South Division Street by Tom Dudzick. Check out the before and after pics of Cortland's amazing new downtown space!

I'm still smiling after yesterday's historic Supreme Court decision. #LoveWins

Happy summer friends. x

Review roundup for Titan's all-female Othello

Leah Gabriel as Roderigo in Othello.jpg

"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

Review Round-up of Boeing Boeing

"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."
