Ingersoll soared... Simply magnificent... What a performance!"

Ever feel a little left out? Well you were when Mindy Kaling dropped her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns). But chin up lonely-pants, because you can slumber party with your very own copy today! Head on over to The Concerns of Mindy Kaling and treat yourself. I seriously feel that this book was written just for me. Seriously, look at us two smart, sexy bookends in our sparkly sweaters. We didn’t even call each other to coordinate that. It’s called Kismet. Maybe one day we will call each other though, and intentionally wear cute, complementary outfits. And hang out and laugh. And watch TV and stuff. When we’re BFFs.
I am overjoyed and do portend, “Things are going to start happening to me now.” I am accepted to train with the The Groundlings. Hollywood’s premiere improvisation and sketch comedy theatre has been called “the pipeline of comedy talent into current television programming.” The LA Times proclaims, “Here before your very eyes are the faces that will dominate the billboards of the future.” The Groundlings has reigned as a comedy star-factory for decades. To wit, this is the birthplace of Pee Wee Herman.
Hey, remember that little Cyan & Sparkles number I worked at the LA Ovations Awards Red Carpet? WELL MADGE IS SOAKING IN IT! Witness Our Lady Madonna in a similar Stella McCartney at The Met’s Costume Institute Gala. Notice the dates, s’il vous plait.
Special thanks to my escorts for the evening, Michael Ingersoll and Erich Bergen.
I recently had the good fortune to meet and share a cozy brunch with The Bedwetter herself, Ms. Sarah Silverman. The audacious comedian/actress was super cool, laid back, and generous of spirit. I, on the other hand, was tongue-tied, sweaty-palmed, and over-dressed. But boy was I grateful. I anticipate that in future meetings I will possess the maturity to use my words, rather than nodding wide eyed with eggs in my mouth the whole time. Thanks to the good folks at the LA Food Bank for the opportunity.
Showbiz couples learn to cope when parts keep them apart – and bring them back together again
…Like Cudia and Voytko, the Ingersolls met on the stage; they were asked to prepare the marriage proposal scene from The Importance of Being Earnest for a regional theater. It wasn’t long before they were rehearsing their own marriage proposal scene.
It’s hard to imagine actors with this much talent attributing their success to “perseverance” and “discipline.” But that’s exactly what Michael and Angela Ingersoll say when asked by Metropolis Insider…
Angela relays, “You don’t have to be the most talented or beautiful or the smartest. You have to do everything you can to make it happen for yourself.”
CENTER STAGE: She’s known her passion forever: the desire to be center stage, in the heat of the lights, acting and singing her heart out. “I remember being three years old, taking my clothes off and saying, ‘Look, I’m Gypsy Rose Lee.'” While the stages have changed and the costumes have been a bit more complete, the passion of theatre and the drama of drama have stayed right in the heart of Ingersoll.
AI: The element of surprise in that is what I like, because we can be having a very realistic conversation, and suddenly one of us gets an idea that sends us into a rhapsody. All of the sudden you’re carried into all of these feelings and emotions coming from musical exploration. I really enjoy that about musical theatre. And then come back, to the simplicity of going on with regular life. But all these things are inside of you!
Live Lunch Broadcast: Host Kacky Walton interviews Angela Ingersoll on her award-nominated role as Aldonza in Man Of La Mancha, live from the stage of Playhouse on the Square. Topics include Cervantes, compliments, and corsets.
F & F Magazine: Without forcing you to become too philosophical, why do you think this show has had such a profound effect on the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community?
Ingersoll: I think many in the LGBT community can identify with that child who feels no one at home understands them and must forge out into the world to find their own identity. And once they get out into the world, realizing they can’t use the tools they were given growing up, must now utilize new tools as they’re discovered. Even the ‘home’ everyone is looking for is simply the realization that you must be comfortable with yourself.
