Next Profile of the Month: Gabrielle Garza!

Hi guys,

Steffi is still busy putting together her Profile of the Month video. I know most of you have said you like the video format better, but it does take a lot of editing.

Gabby is our next Profile of the Month! We wanted her answers to be ready while we were in Boston, where Gabbby went to Emerson College, so we're not waiting.

If you've got a question for the wonderful Ms. Garza, please leave a comment below. Questions are due by end of day Tue, April 21st. That gives you a little less than five days. Thanks!

Hola Gabby! if I can call you that.

Here are two questions:

1) What song do you sing embarrassingly loud and/or dance to when your by yourself?


2) If you were to be on America's Next Top Model, what would be your signature walk (you totally have to show it though - lol).

I know they're silly - have fun! and LA miss you and the cast.

Meg said...

Gabby, if you couldn't be a singer/actor on Broadway, what would you want to be and why?

Em said...

Hi Gabby!

My questions for you is: Have you made any really strong friendship bonds with anyone in the cast?

Mel said...

Thanks, sorry for all of the questions hah, keep being amazing in spring awakening :)

David from Harlingen, TX said...

Hello Gabby, i had just one quick question. I know that Phoebe Strole was an understudy on Broadway while also originating the role of Anna. Is there some reason that you - as Anna on tour - did not understudy another role?

Jessica said...

Hey Gabby, In the video "Hairspray Danger Zone" did you know you were spraying Matt in the face?

Symantha said...

Hey Gabby,

If you could meet any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

Can't wait to see you & the cast on tour soon!

Love Always,

Anonymous said...

'sup Gabby? :) That's not my question, haha.

1) You're known as quite the fashionista among your fellow cast members. What are you favorite brands/designers? I'm curious.

2) If you could travel back in time for whatever reason, what time period would you want to visit? Who would you want to spend the day with and why?

Laura said...

John said...

Love me some Gabby Garza!

What is a typical day in the life of a Spring Awakening Company Member?

What are some of the craziest gifts fans have sent you or other cast members?

Can't wait to see you all again in Pittsburgh!

Hi Gabby! Or Gabrielle...lol.

Wwere you in shows growing up, and if so, which ones? :)

Mia said...

If you could change anything about touring, what would it be? =)

Irene (from Guam) said...

if you could relive one part of your live (either to re-enjoy the moment or change it) what would it be?

what did you want to be when you were little? and did that dream change as you got older?

what's your lifelong dream?

this may be a weird question..but if you were a boy, what would your name be? (feel free to be creative) :P

Rozzie said...

How does the tour differ from the broadway show?

have you seen the broadway or london productions?

Rozzie said...

one more question-sorry

when is the tour coming back to san francisco or phoenix? those are the only places i could see it and i realllly want to!

Pun said...

Hi Rozzie,

These aren't really questions for Gabby...the tour is scheduled to come to Costa Mesa, CA in November, not too far from SF...and closest that's been announced to Phoenix is Tucson.

We havn't updated all the tour stops that have been announced by the venues in our calendar yet. We'll put them all in an upcoming blog post.

PS. Yes, Gabby saw the show on Broadway while they were rehearsing in NYC, and no, she really hasn't had time to go to London!

Megan said...

Hi Gabrielle (or Gabby whichever your prefer).
The tour is pretty much centered in the United States and Canada. If you could take the tour to any city or country, where would you go? See you on one of the tour dates in June!

Dylan said...

Hey Gabby!

Waht were you favorite cities you have traveled to so far on tour? Top 5, with 1 being the best.

Hey Gabby & co!

What's the story behind "BELLY MAMBA" & is it improv?


your great friend.. anonymous...

heytheremeranda said...

Hey Gabby.

I was just wondering what is it like for you (personally) to have the audience sit on stage with you? Would it change your performance in any way if the audience was not on stage with you?

Thanks for your time.

If you could anywhere in the world, where would your top 3 places to live be and why?

P.S. my name is Alex LOL

Cameron (from near Ottawa, Ontario) said...

Hey GabbyGarza! You are amazing (I saw you in T.O) but I'm sure you already know that and get that ALL the time. Anyways, my question for you is:

" If you could go SEE ANY OTHER production of Spring Awakening RIGHT NOW (ie: in Sweden, London, Japan or wherever else it is playing, or GOING to play) where would go?"

Thanks :) and good luck with the rest of the tour.

PS: I think you guys should all get together and make a "How to: 'Belly Mamba'" video! Just a thought ;)

Anonymous said...

What's your heritage and/or ethnic background?

May said...

What performance have you been the most nervous for so far? Why? How did it go? (haha fine, I hope!)

If you know that friends or family are in the audience on any given night do you do anything special/different during the show?

What is your favorite line..or the one that speaks to you the most (from a song or dialogue) in the show and why?

Thanks for being amazing!

Antonio said...

Hello Gabby, just wanted to say I saw the show way back in November in LA and I hope to see you guys soon again in November in Costa Mesa. Okay so I have a few questions:
1) As seen in the Totally Trucked vids you read Kurt Vonnegut books, what is your favorite book by Kurt Vonnegut? What is your favorite book overall?
2) If you could go back to a city where the tour has been and perform again, which city would you choose?
3) Have you ever autographed anything weird at stage door?
4) If you could speak any language in the world, which language would you speak and why?
5) And finally, Mac or PC?
Thanks, again can't wait till November!

Did you take Nodesy?

If you were a superhero and had 3 superpowers, what would they be?

do you have a celebrity crush? if so, who is it?

would you rather the on-stage audience know you're in the cast or be completely oblivious and surprised?

Irene (from Guam) said...

Hey Gabby,
I have another question:

I'm looking at Emerson as a college to apply to.
What would you say are the benefits or selling points for Emerson? What do you love about the college?

Rozzie said...

If you could be an animal for a day what would you be?

Angelo (from Guam) said...

Hey Gabby!
First of all I just want to say you're awesome :)

My questions are:

If you were any other character in any other musical, which character would you be and why?

What were your expectations when you were still in Emerson College?

How does it feel like to be the nicest person in the tour? (according to your generosity in Perry's Extended Run, doing Blake's laundry and all that :)

Thank you :)

Anonymous said...

when you meet fans at the stage door, do you sometimes get annoyed with signing autographs over and over?
do you want to be treated like a normal person instead of as a celebrity?

Caitlin D said...

Hey Gabby!
Toronto misses you already. :(

My questions are: What is your favourite candy?


White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate?

Which disney princess would you be?

What is your favorite snack/junk food?

Hey Gabby!!
You and your Spring Awakening cast members inspired me to pursue my dreams of being on broadway! I saw your show in february (columbus,oh) and since then have been a huge FAN!!
1)do you guys have fun making the extended run videos? Any funny moments/memories while filming?

2)If you had to date any boy member of your cast who would it be and why?

3) you guys seem like such a close group of friends offstage. Was everyone really nice when you first all met each other?

4)what advice would you have for someone who wants to be on broadway?

Thanks:)PS: My name is Taylor! say hi to kyle for me!

Anonymous said...

5)How did you hear about the audtion for SA?

7)which cast members did you meet during your audtion?

Nicole said...

What is the one song that you can never get sick of no matter how many times you listen to it?

If you were Queen for the day, what rules would you enforce and what would you make everyone do?

And I asked Kyle this question but it would be interesting to see what your answers would be so...

If the Spring Awakening tour cast was back in High School, who would be voted...

1. Class clown
2. Biggest flirt
3. Most athletic
4. Best dressed
5. Best smile
6. Most intellectual

Irene said...

Performing 8 times a week is very demanding. How do you stay healthy and prevent yourself from losing your voice during a show?
is it a big battle to stay consistently healthy?

I'd love to perform in a professional show too, and I am so curious about how you all do it.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you just want to send a quick note to all the cast members telling them you appreciate their work, you can email us here at totallytruckedblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be happy to forward your email to the cast, but to preserve their privacy, it is unlikely they will email you back (I will, though).

You can also send individual performers fan mail and care packages care of the theatre at which we are currently performing or will be performing. Go to the theatre's website (listed above), find their mailing address, write the actor's name as well as "Spring Awakening" and send c/o the theatre. Remember, we are often at these theatres for only a week so make sure to allow for delivery times. It's a better bet to send it to the theatre we will be going to next as they can always hold packages for us until we arrive. Letters received late will not be forwarded to our next location.

2. How Can I Audition for Spring Awakening?
From time to time, we have open calls in larger cities across the US. We will post any additional open calls here. Subscribe if you havn't already to keep informed. In the meantime, we've made it easy for you to submit yourself singing a folk/alternative rock song on video. Go to: http://www.springawakening.com/videoauditionsubmission/ Make sure your submission is less than 500 MB and is one of the accepted formats. Your screen should change and you should get a confirmation that says your submission has been received. Trust us, people are called in this way. Lucas Wells was cast because of an online submission!

3. How Do I Score On Stage Seats?
That is really up to the individual theatres. Most of them won't release the seats until just before performances because they want to make sure the house is sold first. Some do so online, although the ticketing systems they have in place often can't accommodate our unique seats onstage. Most of them are available only at the box office (though you can purchase them for a performance in the future). The Guilty Ones Street Team members have the rights to purchase these seats before the general public. Any seats left over will be released to the box office and may also be purchased as part of rush tickets (discounted, day-of tickets).

4. How Do I Join The Guilty Ones?

The National Guilty Ones Street Team is a way for fans of the show in each of our tour stops to help us spread the word. You will get access to parties, meet and greets, and other special events while meeting new friends who share your passion for the show, all while gaining some valuable marketing experience. You must be at least 15 yrs old. Email your contact info to nationalguiltyones (at) gmail (dot) com.

5. Can I Get Discounts?

From time to time, a theatre may offer us discounts to send out to our fans. We will post any here on the blog. Subscribe now!

6. Who runs this site? This site was created for fans to stay connected with our touring cast and follow their adventures around North America. Ideally, it would be in the voice of the cast members. Unfortunately, our cast members are often too tired or busy to post lengthy blog posts on a regular basis. Company members will contribute a post from time to time and every month we will have a compiled blog post that most every company member will participate in. The other stuff like updates, etc, will be posted by me. My name is Pun. I work for the production, love this show, its cast, and our fans, and I'm so very glad you're here!

Co 231 W 39th Street Suite 1200 New York, N.Y. 10018.
