"The best Judy Garland Chicago ever saw. Barring the real one.
Ingersoll soared... Simply magnificent... What a performance!"
Trio channels Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Patsy Cline
Angela Ingersoll, who performs the songs of Judy Garland in the show “I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues: A Salute to Ella, Judy & Patsy,” has a simple formula for entertaining audiences. “We are just doing a concert and just being ourselves, presenting it with love,” said Ingersoll about the show that she performs with two other singers, “and that creates the magic.”

Each songstress was a powerhouse. Each voice was immediately recognizable and unique. Had they ever shared a stage, it would have been a concert of titanic proportion… “I couldn’t help but notice these legendary women had similarly terrible lives,” said Angela Ingersoll, who packaged this show and performs Garland’s songs. “It’s pretty lonely being a legend.”
Stars Take the Stage
Having toured and performed in many impressive venues throughout her career, Angela was thrilled with the RAC stating, “I was overcome the second I walked into the space. I could hear myself take my first breath. To hear those acoustics – it’a any musician’s dream.” Her husband Michael added, “I tour 50 to 60 different performing arts center each year and I can tell you, it is very rare for a community such as yours to have a state-of-the-art facility in its backyard that is of this standard in quality and beauty.”
MUSICAL SALUTE HIGHLIGHTS 3 LEGENDS
“They are wonderful; they’re both dynamos and talented, and Michael’s production skills are off the charts and amazing. Angela’s not just simply a performer herself; she has many attributes. Her vocals are incredible, her acting is amazing and her writing takes you to another place. It takes you inside the minds of these individuals as they go through their life journeys.”
“I’m a lesbian. Plain and simple. I don’t make any bones about it.”
Angela was tickled pink to join loud and proud About Face Theatre for a special revival of their revolutionary smash-hit PULP. ABTS’s deliciously campy homage to the sultry, jazzy world of lesbian pulp fiction was resurrected for two nights only with an all-star Chicago cast. And wouldn’t you just know it, Angela appeared as the bad-girl. Bing. Bing Cherry. Written by Patricia Kane and directed by Jessica Thebus.
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.”
Twas a glorious summer for Shakespeare in the Parks. And best of all, FREE FOR ALL. In the mash-up romantic romp SHAKESPEARE’S GREATEST HITS, Angela starred as Titania Queen of the Fairies (A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM) and Kate the Shrew (THE TAMING OF THE SHREW). CST’s annual Parks Tour is a cultural gem. Pictured: Actor Angela Ingersoll, CST Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Actor Tiffany Yvonne Cox.

Michael and Angela Ingersoll headline a special event to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the Oak Brook Women’s Club. The couple delight with music from the movies at Le Meridien in a glorious engagement entitled Golden Halos and Hollywood Hallows. Angela promises to stir misty water-colored memories with favorites from Judy, Barbra, and Celine. Michael plans to cook up some enticing selections from Andy Williams, Elvis, and Nat King Cole. As the event falls on Halloween, classic Hollywood attire is a must.
Drury Lane presents Ken Ludwig’s hilarious whodunit The Game’s Afoot. Artistic Director William Osetek helms a formidable cast featuring Derek Hasenstab, Alene Robertson, Rod Thomas, Kathy Logelin, Tempe Thomas, Rob Riddle, Wendy Robie, and Angela Ingersoll as glamorous bitch Daria Chase. (Type casting.) “Daria is played by Angela Ingersoll with singular physical brilliance, and who, alone, is worth the price of admission as she easily steals every scene in which she refuses to be neatly hidden.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
