"Lowe creates a richly detailed central character… Lowe’s Gwen conveys the jittery unease of a woman fighting to resist the seduction of her old friend alcohol, as well as the defensiveness of a woman who feels judged by others – and by herself."
Christine Dolen, Miami Herald
Just in time for Friday the 13th, this drops today on BlackOakTV. Had a blast working on this scary drama series, directed by Tim Orange ii and produced by Filled With Magic Productions!
Just completed the workshop for this world premier this past weekend. I am so humbled to be a part of this powerful piece and tell the true story of Georgia Gabor. Jenny Connell Davis has woven together such a meaningful (and timely!) narrative. Can't wait to get started on rehearsals next month!
Very excited to work on this fascinating story, written by Boni Alvarez, and directed by Jon Lawrence Rivera! Please come share in this moving experience with us at Miami New Drama!
So honored to have a full chapter dedicated to our film in this fascinating, recently published book by Grant Hayter-Menzies on the history and enduring influence of William Luce's "The Belle of Amherst". Now available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and all book outlets. Thanks for encompassing our journey in the long history of this wonderful play!
Well, this was a lovely surprise! Thank you, Florida Weekly, for this wonderful honor! It is greatly appreciated!

Some are more difficult to close than others! What a gift it was to work on Tracy Lett's amazing piece with the most exceptional "family". It was a thrill to hear the audience's visceral reaction to each and every performance!

Trailer for "Just My Type" is out. What a fun project this was! Looking forward to the release and seeing this comic film in completion!
It was an honor bringing Jenny Connolly's brilliant words to life for Palm Beach Dramaworks' New Plays Festival. Excited to see where the journey continues for this powerful, moving piece!
"Starring as Gabor was local actress Margery Lowe, who was last seen at PBD in last season’s Belle Of Amherst and again completely transformed herself to embody the headstrong woman...Gabor’s grandson in the audience tearfully commented on how effectively the play had represented her legacy."
Thank you, Florida Theater On Stage, for including me as one of your most memorable performances of 2022.
"Margery Lowe – Of course, we remember her multi-dimension preconception-erasing Emily Dickinson in Palm Beach Dramaworks’ The Belle of Amherst, both videoed and on stage. But even more amazing was the voluble young woman in GableStage’s Heisenberg – a performance and overall production so superior that I genuinely forgot I had seen it on Broadway with Mary Louise Parker."

Carlos Riviera Fernandez wrote a beautiful script and it was such a joy to work on it with the lovely Camila Fernandez.
This was special... not only a lovely script, but they gave me straight hair and I was able to use a COMB! (A big novelty for this curly-haired woman).
Not sure I could've had a better time with this fun script! (Spoiler: the diamond was a fake)
Back on set! A fun shoot with this little pro.
