As frontwoman and songwriter for Weimar Berlin-influenced band The Love Markets and a member of Actor's Equity since 2000, Angie has performed on nearly all Seattle's major stages, as well as major regional theatres like Theatre Under The Stars (Houston), Ordway (St. Paul), and American Musical Theatre of San Jose. Her record releases include WORLD OF YOUR DREAMS (2013) and BEAUTY FACTORY (2016); her film credits include penning screenplays and songs for award-winning feature films GORY GORY HALLEULJAH (in which she also starred) and SWITCHMAS, starring Elliott Gould. Thanks to musical theatre, Angie's been cut in half by a magician, pulled around in a cart by a pony who accidentally pooped during the opening number, shared scenes with dogs, rabbits and boa constrictors, roller-skated onstage, wrestled three hillbilly brothers, originated the roles of a vaudeville diva and a jazz beatnik, worked with Charles Strouse and Judy Kaye, danced with Cheyenne Jackson, and been tossed in the air by a baseball team. As an indie film actress, she's been burned at the stake, fought over by a clown and a mime, ridden a cannon, risen from the dead, and played Mrs. Claus in outer space. As an actor-musician, she's been a beehived housewife who plays a mean rock piano (5th Avenue Theatre, "Buddy Holly Story"), a Nazi prostitute who plays accordion (5th Avenue and regional tour, "Cabaret"), and a cool dog who somehow plays both (Seattle Children's Theatre's beloved "Go, Dog! Go!"). In the first quarter of 2017, you can see Angie performing on TV's ArtZone, playing Molly in Unsinkable Molly Brown at Benaroya Hall, opening and closing Seattle's annual March Is Cabaret Month Festival, returning as special guest artist and bandleader for Sandbox Radio at Town Hall, and appearing with The Love Markets in their ninth installment of cirque-variete showcase "Burlesco Notturno".
