Review for “Our Town” from The Show Report:
“[George Gibbs’] counterpart in the Webb family is daughter Emily (Gabrielle Sigrist). As the girl next door, she’s bright and speaks her mind, but her life is cut short when she dies bearing her second child at the age of 26. We see her grow from a sweet kid to a blushing bride over the course of the show, and her likeability makes her early death that much more poignant.”
Gabrielle Sigrist (Gabby for short) is an LA based actor, performer, and writer. She recently graduated from Seattle University with degrees in Theatre and Philosophy. She believes that theatre is the school of empathy - a place for transformation and emotional discovery. She tells stories as an actor in order to share with a community of curious, discerning, and imaginative seekers all the multi-dimensional ways we experience what it means to be human in the world and on this Earth.
Inspired by the genre of magical realism, she writes plays and texts that are highly poetic drawing on concepts from feminist art and theory, witchcraft, various world philosophies, and the works of Shakespeare. To her, stories are portals into the vivid subconscious landscapes we only access in dreams. She is also always asking how we are making theatre for a new generation that combats social injustice and uplifts marginalized voices. To live in today's world is to be political and healing for our collective anxiety can be done by coming together as a community in the theatre, which is why she is interested in new script development as well as innovative re-imaginings of the classics.
When not in a theater, Gabby will most likely be found with a piping hot cup of black coffee in one hand keeping her eyes to the sky for a prime moon view. Catch her around town coming and going from yoga and meditation class, patting all the dogs, doing the Stevie Nicks spin at the club, and convincing a stranger that Twin Peaks is the ultimate cinematic masterpiece.
