Back before we had a blog (I barely remember life without blogs), I conducted an interview with Michael and Angela Ingersoll. They had just moved to Chicago (2005/06), had been cast in our production of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change! and Michael had just learned that he was going to join the national tour of Jersey Boys immediately upon finishing his run here at Metropolis. The interview had been taken offline and archived. I thought it might be fun to put that back up for folks to read. Here it is, in it’s original unedited form.
Vision, Persistence. An Interview with Husband & Wife Actors Michael and Angela Ingersoll.
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 re:create.
The husband and wife teamed up with actors Julie Burt and Steve O’Connell in I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Metropolis’ opening production of the 2006/2007 season. This was the second time in these roles for the Ingersolls, both having performed in Love/Perfect at Playhouse on the Square in Memphis. But to become such a successful husband – wife team, they had to become a husband and wife.
