The Lesbian Thespian

When did you have that “moment” when you knew this is what you wanted to do?
Angela: ” I ended up doing a lot of musicals and children’s theater in high school, (which is what I’m really good at, children’s theater). I don’t think I ever really had a “moment.”

Why did you decide theater and not something more lucrative?
Angela: “When I’d talk about my theater classes to my advisor I got really animated. He said, “I think you should start doing theater.” Hey, that could have been my “moment” when I decided to do theater.”

What have we seen you in at the University Theater?
Angela: “You would have seen me in Hibernation, Vagina Monologues...twice, and Patrick Sims’ Theater for Social and Cultural awareness…”

What are some of your dream roles?
Angela: “The Nurse in Romeo & Juliet.”

Ha ha ..why?
Angela: “My uncle always told me “you  have to know who you are, Angela, Juliet or the Nurse.”…and I’m like “I’m the Nurse!”

Ok, so what musical theater roles have you enjoyed playing?
Angela: “I really liked being Eponine in Les Miz in High School. Chippewa Falls Senior High School…big town.” (she says sarcastically)

How old were you when you came out?
Angela: “To myself? About 17. I came out to the rest of the world between then and now because…you know…you come out everyday.”

Do you think that theater helps that at all…being around people doing what you love?
Angela: “Well, I was always surrounded by gay men in the theater. I could always look to them because they were comfortable with who they were at a younger age.”

Have you had any crushes on anyone in the shows you’ve done?
Angela: “Ok, yeah, Vagina Monologues…hello, lesbian heaven. So there are 30 women and they’re all talking about their vaginas so I have a crush on like half of them.”

Anything else you’d like to say to our readers?
Angela: “Go and watch shows so we can keep putting them on for you…and if they need an actress…”
