As the longtime frontwoman and songwriter for Weimar Berlin-influenced band The Love Markets and a proud member of Actor's Equity since 2000, Angie has performed on Seattle's major stages (The 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT, Village Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre, Seattle Rep) and across the U.S. (Houston's Theatre Under The Stars, Ordway in St. Paul, American Musical Theatre of San Jose). With The Love Markets, Angie's 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, worked with Charles Strouse and Judy Kaye, 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 played a beehived housewife who pounds a mean piano (5th Avenue Theatre, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story), a singing Nazi prostitute who accompanies herself on accordion (5th Avenue and regional tour, Cabaret), rock star Jesse Dove and blues-belting force of nature Bertha McKellan (recent workshops of Citizen Ruth at Balagan Theatre and Cumberland Blues at Village Theatre). In 2017, Angie was seen returning to the role of Molly in Unsinkable Molly Brown for Showtunes Theatre Company at Benaroya Hall; reprising her role of Hattie in a new production of Go, Dog! Go! at Seattle Children's Theatre; appearing as special guest artist and bandleader for Sandbox Radio at Town Hall; and performing with The Love Markets at ACT Theatre and TV's "ArtZone With Nancy Guppy". In the first half of 2018, you can see Angie workshopping new musical Anybody Can Do Anything (NEXTFest, The 5th Avenue Theatre); creating and performing commissioned songs for Bell & Battery, a new work produced by The Rendezvous with a grant from 4Culture; hosting and performing singer-songwriter sets in the 11th annual March Is Cabaret Month Festival at Egan's; and taking the stage with The Love Markets at Burlesco Notturno on Vashon May 12 and at the Jewelbox Theater in downtown Seattle on June 16.
