Chicago Tribune Shout Out

ANGELA INGERSOLL: ENTERTAINER, ACTRESS, SINGER, COMEDIENNE
“I never really learned my right from my left. I have a decent sense of direction, but not left and right. Secretly, I always rub my index and middle fingers together, to feel for the pencil bump callus that I built up in grade school to help me find my right hand.”

The Great Gatsby at Indiana Repertory Theatre

Angela was thoroughly delighted to join a magnificent group of artists bringing the Great American Novel to life on stage. Indiana Repertory Theatre presented F. Scott Fitzgerald’s THE GREAT GATSBY adapted by Simon Levy. Angela appeared as the desperately lovesick and crass floozy Myrtle Wilson. Naturally. “This project was particularly dear to my heart. It’s a story about running from your past, and coming back home. As an Indianapolis native, IRT was the cradle of several memorable and influential theatrical experiences in my youth. I was an ugly duckling who idolized several of the artists populating this organization. It’s an honor to join their ranks.”
