UnBeatable has a very special place in Brittany Garrison’s heart. She had the honor of portraying Tracy Boyd for the Hamilton Gibson Productions in Wellsboro, PA, in 2012. A few years after her leading performance, Brittany had to channel Tracy’s strength when she faced a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis on her 30th birthday. The lines and songs of this fabulous, uplifting play kept her strong and sure while facing the unknown.
That UnBeatable spirit continued when her father was diagnosed with throat cancer in the middle of recording a solo album, so she left Pittsburgh to be with her parents, helping her father finish his album using her voice.
When I was first involved in UnBeatable, I saw a lot of myself in the main character and thought to myself, this is a sign and message for me to slow down and not be so driven to just get things done but instead enjoy more of the heart-to-heart connections with the people I love and those who are in my world.
When it showed up a second time, it was like a bit of a check-in to see how am I doing with what I learned the first time as well as a louder call to get my check-ups and not wait, since I recently had a similar experience as the main character on a different level this time. Powerful show with powerful messages!
