Angela’s portrayal of Janis Joplin in the musical biopic “Janis Joplin: Full Tilt” has gained her multiple awards including a Herald Angel 2015 and a Mercury Musical Theatre Network Award 2014. The stage show combines a live-gig where Angela (as Janis Joplin) performs some of Joplin’s much loved songs with a full band; and intertwined between the songs is an emotional biopic and heart-breaking insight into the psyche of the tumultuous rock star. Janis Joplin: Full Tilt has toured Scotland and was reviewed by the Scotsman as a “No.1 Top Pick” at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.
