Eighteen months ago, the talented Cary Davenport was tasked to write a musical version of As You Like It! Now, 18 months later, Angelique is thrilled to be playing Celia in the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company's 1990s Brit-pop musical version of As You Like It which features 31 Original Songs!
With songs like "Seven Ages of Man," "Blow Thou Winter Wind," and "Rosalind and Celia Flee," this Shakespearean romantic comedy will have audiences singing the score for weeks after they see this show!
This show has made Angelique step out of her comfort zone in more ways than one. She is so grateful for another opportunity to, as her friend Courtney Lucien (who plays Rosalind in the show) would say, "chase challenges" and for the brave space CSC provides her to continue to grow as an artist.

This holiday season, Angelique was able to play onstage again with her Cincinnati Shakespeare Company family as Beth in Little Women.
Beth is so similar to her in so many different ways. The more she discovered about Beth, the more she realized what kindred spirits they really were. And what a wonderful (and incredibly difficult) experience that really was. Those lines between character and actor blurring--especially in a version of this show that deals so heavily with grief and familial loss--were hard to shake off at the end of every night. But she believes this experience was necessary, and so important to grow as a person and as an artist.
She is forever grateful for this experience
And to Beth. She has learned so much from you. The conscious of the family. But the thing that she will never forget is the line:
“You get the privilege of growing up, so use it.”
Which she was able to say every single night. Life is a privilege; it is not a guarantee. And every day that we are alive is a blessing. It is a gift. So how are you going to use it?

This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of show. It's a show that centers Black Femmes and our experiences. It is a show that Angelique will never forget. It is also a show that allowed Angelique to play a Black Woman onstage, a character originally written to be Black: something that she has never done before. Frankie is both so similar to me and so wildly different. She is complex, funny, insecure, a little mean, and contains multitudes. And it is not often that Black characters are like that, that they are allowed to be that. To be difficult and emotional, to deal with mental health, friend, and love issues. To laugh and cry and everything in between.
And then to be surrounded by these hilarious and talented Black women. Angelique has absolutely loved being in the room, working and laughing with Ariel, Jasimine, and A.J every day.
This is a show that you don’t want to miss!

Angelique is Living Out Her Wildest Dreams by Being in A Production of Pride and Prejudice, Her Favorite Book!
May 20th to June 19th, 2022
It is a truth universally acknowledge that Pride and Prejudice is Angelique's favorite book of all time. And the opportunity to play Jane Bennet and Miss Anne de Bourgh in this story was something she had never thought possible. Let alone in this 8 person, wickedly funny production at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company.
This production has been an absolute dream come true! Kate Hamill's adaptation of the story brings out the comedic and satirical nature of the book in a way that hasn't been done in any adaptation Angelique has ever seen! This story is still sweepingly romantic while also bringing to the forefront themes of gender and a woman's role in society, then and now.
Angelique is enjoying every minute of being able to bring this story to audiences young and old in this fresh and funky adaptation.

And while she knows that what makes theatre so great is its ephemerality. That plays “are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time.” This one is going to live in her memory for a long time.
