Kaitlin Gilgenbach grew up in a strange place far, far away called Florida. She journeyed to Chicago-land, when she was invited to attend Northwestern University. By nights, she toils away at a brewpub to support herself and her kittens, Stella and Giles Poussey. The New Colony has been her fairy godmother, granting her admission into their Writers’ Room program, along with turning her into a member of the Associate Company. Many of Kaitlin’s wishes have come true: Her musical, The Guide to Being Single (co-written by Alexi Kovin), was produced by Underscore Theatre in Chicago, at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and has an upcoming production at the Starbuck Theatre Company in the UK. She’s had shorter works in the PreTENd Play Festival (NU), Young Playwrights’ Festival (Florida Stage), and has had a script workshopped at the Annoyance Theatre. She’s elated that the Associate Company is the perfect fit!
