And the reviews are in…

PRESS FOR “GO, DOG. GO!” AT SEATTLE CHILDREN’S THEATE

“‘Go, Dog. Go!’ a doggy treat… Louise is hilarious as Hattie… A highly imaginative musical.”

Read on for excerpts and links to full reviews!

“Inventive script, talented cast make for hilarious offering…

Each actor brings something unique… Interspersed throughout the dog-doings comes Hattie (Angie Louise), the luxuriously fashionable pink poodle. All the commotion stops as she sashays onto the stage singing a scatty little number a la Ella Fitzgerald and donning an elaborately silly hat… Louise is hilarious as Hattie.”

- Queen Anne / Magnolia News

Full review: www.queenannenews.com

“A joyous jam… A marvel…

This faithful adaptation did not disappoint, magically transferring the book’s Technicolor palette and zany spirit from page to stage… Music, songs, dance and physical comedy fill in the fun, such as when the familiar pink poodle in her increasingly wild hats struts in, bopping to what sounded like a French tune…”

- Seattle’s Child

Full review: www.seattleschild.com

“Hits a bulls-eye…

Whimsical humor (and) a captivating crew of actors who keep everything lively under Dietz’s direction.”

- Seattle Times

Full review: seattletimes.nwsource.com

“A dynamic production… at once antic and restrained, hilarious and quietly contemplative…

As a group, the cast engages the audience seemingly without effort.”

PRESS FOR “CABARET” at Theatre Under The Stars…

Houston’s weather may have been hell in June, but its audiences were great, giving us nightly standing ovations during our run of the 5th Avenue’s Cabaret revival at beautiful 3000-seat Serafim Hall in Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. (They also gave us sexually offended walk-outs and raging blog controversies… who could ask for anything more?)

“This revival is so good it’s scary. That’s ideal for a musical whose genius always has been to couch a disturbing theme within a giddy, naughty, exhilaratingly entertaining framework… Splendid performances by one of the best casts ever assembled for this show, all persuasive actors especially strong in the vocal department… Mike McGowan and Angie Louise are strong in their supporting roles.” - Houston Chronicle

“Astonishing… This re-imagined Cabaret is a perfect, glorious gift… A stunning production, not to be missed… Fraulein Kost is exuberantly realized by Angie Louise. Her accordion-led reprise of “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” is guaranteed to bring goose-bumps to even the shyest theatre-goer…” - TheatrePort.com

“Riveting… This production, directed by Bill Berry with all the fearless muscularity a story like this needs, adds a new layer to the uniquely scary appeal of the show… The cast of this moving production is terrific.” - Houston Press

JUNE 16 - 28, 2009.

On Thursday, October 16, at 7:30 pm, we'll be the musical guests on Town Hall's monthly quiz show, You're On The List. If you missed us in April, now's your chance. If you caught us in April and liked us, we're playing all new material! Drop in Thursday night for a program that includes the brilliant but little-known songs of Weimar composer Hans Eisler as well as Angie's new songs "Slipwrecked" and "My Little Weiner Schnitzel", a risqué duet about meat. In between double entendres, we may be pelting you with sausages, so don"t worry about eating beforehand.

REVIEWS for "CABARET".

May 18: Cabaret closes in St. Paul, and what a long strange trip it's been. Thanks to everyone who worked on the show and to everyone who came to see it in San Jose, Seattle and St. Paul. A few reviews:

"Musical theatre nirvana at its finest... Darkly wicked, breathtakingly real... The risks Berry and his team take are spot on... A top-notch cast who understand the power of their subject... The haunting finale feels more appropriate and groundbreaking than ever... Here is a "Cabaret" that gets everything right.

"Nick Garrison is at the top of his game... As Fraulein Kost, Angie Louise shines brightly with a strong belt, comedic chops that rival the greats, and wonderful dramatic timing."

- Broadway2Seattle.com | Click here to read full review.

"Suzy Hunt (as Fraulein Schneider) and Angie Louise (as Fraulein Kost) are captivating... Nick Garrison is a master of improvisation."

- The Stranger

"The 5th Avenue Theatre's thoroughly decadent, thoroughly delightful Cabaret is one of the finest productions the theater has ever mounted... Nick Garrison is a superstar performer... Angie Louise is sensational as Fraulein Kost."

- Seattle Gay News

"Angie Louise creates a brusquely humorous grotesque of the resident boardinghouse prostitute... and anchors the fittingly unsettling act one finale "Tomorrow Belongs to Me"."

- TalkinBroadway.com

"A strong, dark production, scintillating with significance... Odd, angular stage framing, the rounded, red cabaret tables and the towering Edwardian arched windows provide a stark visual contrast to the right angles in machined, Albert Speer-like iterations that end Act 1 as Nazi flags descend on the cabaret like the hammer of an Aryan god. This artful, evocative vision marks everything that follows with a shudder."

HAPPY THANKSGIVING - 2006 "SEASON OF LIGHT" AUCTION

Angie Louise and the merry maidens of Kitten In Swingville performed two hours of swingin' Andrews Sisters-style tunes at the annual Children's Hospital Season of Light Auction dinner and dance, contributing boogie-woogie bugling and holiday harmonies to this annual Thanksgiving weekend event.

"What a great job... These gals are awesome!"

- Aileen Kelly, Director, Children's Hospital Fund

KUDOS FOR "SUPERMAN" (October 2006)

Cast and audience alike got a rare treat on the opening night of ShowTunes' concert production of IT'S A BIRD... IT'S A PLANE... IT'S SUPERMAN! with the attendance and impromptu performance of a special guest: the show's composer, Broadway legend Charles Strouse (ANNIE, BYE BYE BIRDIE, APPLAUSE). The audience sang along like a roomful of Ediths and Archies as Strouse played one of his best-loved compositions, "Those Were The Days". The composer gave kudos to ShowTunes' production, Eric Englund's performance, and the casting of Angie Louise in the role of originally-male mad scientist Dr. Sedgwick. The composer told the crowd that he'd tried to convince his original 1966 Broadway creative team that the villain would work best as a woman; his colleagues disagreed, saying no one would "buy" a female Nobel Prize-nominated physicist. Claiming victory forty years later, Strouse called Louise's performance "Brilliant!" Thanks to Showtunes' wonderfully supportive audiences for a super weekend.

"As mad scientist Dr. Abby Sedgwick (traditionally played by a man), Angie Louise gave a performance full of madness, determination, and just the right touch of diva... Louise has the comic charm of a Carol Burnett, the devilishness of a Ruth Buzzi, and the soprano belt of a Carolee Carmello... Mesmerizing work."

- Robbie Wachs, TalkinBroadway.com

"The breakout performance was given by Angie Louise as the nefarious Dr. Sedgwick, an evil-spirited scientist with a record of being unfairly overlooked for the Nobel Prize. Her sheer delight in "Revenge" kept her character balanced on the edge of the preposterous - perfect for comic-book reality..."

- Jerry Kraft, SeattleActor.com

VILLAGE THEATRE FESTIVAL OF NEW MUSICALS

Village Theatre presents their sixth annual Festival of New Musicals, curated from a now-international pool of musicals in development and presented in association with their playwrights and composers. THE BIG DEAL, a collaboration between London and Los Angeles-based writing teams, is billed as "two musicals about death and show biz." In the first act, a musical-hating theatre producer (Eric Jensen) develops a brain tumor and begins to hallucinate everyone around him bursting into song; in the second act, the surviving sister of a dead playwright (Angie Louise) tries to fix her life by putting on the show her brother left behind.

Festival runs August 3 through 6 at Village Theatre's First Stage; festival passes are $75. 425-392-2202. THE BIG DEAL performs Sunday, August 6 at 2 pm, and is directed by Bryce Britton.

Starring Eric Jensen, Angie Louise, Karen Skrinde, John Lutyens, Charissa Bertels.

February 2006:

Von Piglet Sisters' Circus of Infinity takes Honorable Mention at Seattle's First Annual Science Fiction Film Festival, tying with Israeli film Heartbeat and audience award-winner Cost of Living. The festival's debut was a huge success, as ticket-takers turned patrons away from both sold-out shows at the 800-seat Cinerama. Kudos to Seattle sci-fi fans! What a fabulous geek town we are.
